Locating a Journal Title

Leanne Wells

Does the Library Have This Journal?

This is a question that library staff are often asked. UNB Libraries subscribes to over 90,000 journals in either print and/or electronic form.

If you know the title of the journal (magazine or newspaper) and you want to discover if UNB Libraries has access to it, there are two strategies you can use to find it.

Using Journals and Newspapers

The following video offers one approach to locate the journal using the Journals & Newspapers tab on our UNB Libraries’ website:

Using UNB WorldCat

Our UNB WorldCat catalogue can also be used to find a journal title. Simply go to the UNB Libraries website and type the journal title into the catalogue. For example, if you are looking for the Harvard Business Review, type in the title of the journal and select Journal Title from the drop down menu as displayed below.
