- There are different ways to search for journals on the catalogue, one of which is explained in the post ‘Using Journals’.· Remember to look out for the internet resource symbol, this will bring you to the eJournals or online journals (see image above). Not all journals are online.
- After you have clicked on the title you are looking for, you will see a link under ‘Connect to’ (see image above). Click on the link and you will be brought to the online journal.
- By accessing the journal through the library catalogue you will automatically be signed in, which will allow you to read the articles.
- The online journal will have different layouts to their home pages but look out for the word ‘Browse’ or ‘All issues’, or look out for the search box (see red arrows on image above).· With the search box you can search by subject (keyword), author, or title of article and you will be brought to a list of articles that should be relevant to your research needs.· If you know the year and issue of the article, use the search ‘All issues’ link. This will bring you to a list of articles published in this issue, scroll through the titles to find what you are looking for.
- Remember, some publications put a one-year embargo on journals. This means you will not be able to access a journal from the last year. If you have, any queries email firstname.lastname@example.org or ask at the desk.

Finding a print journal
· First students should go to the DIT library catalogue. Then, go to the drop down box and click on Journal Title (see image below).
· Type in the title of the journal and click submit. You will be brought to a page with a list of journals that have the same name (see image below). When you see a global symbol (see arrows) under the journal title this means that it is available online.
· Click on the first title and the location of the journal will be given (see image below). Make sure the journal is in Cathal Brugha library and then check the call #. If this is not the journal you are searching for click on next record.
· Remember to look for the library has section (underlined in green above) this lets students and staff know how far back the print journals go. In the library we keep, at most, three years of a journal and later issues are kept in the Grangegorman store. If you require a journal from an earlier year, and it is available in store, you can request this journal at the library desk.
· Print journals are kept in the back of the library, through the double doors on the right.
· Newer editions are to the right and the back left of the journal room. Under the flap of the shelf you will find later editions from this year (see image above). Back issues from 2014-2016 are kept in boxes on the left-hand shelf.
