How do I locate journal articles?

The National Library has a guide to using journal indexes, and locating journal articles in the Library's collection. The Library's online catalogue only lists journal titles giving details of the volumes and issues held. It does not index the contents of the journal.

Journal indexes can be found in the Library's eResources. Some electronic resources are freely available over the internet, some are available offsite to registered readers, whilst some are only available from within the National Library building. If you are able to visit the National Library you can access articles from full text databases or from journals held in the Library collections.

If you are a remote user of the National Library, and the article you seek is in a journal not accessible online or through your local library, it may be possible to acquire a copy through the Copies Direct service.
