Finding Journals in the Library Catalog


To determine if the library subscribes to a journal, search the library catalog. The catalog record(s) will indicate dates of coverage and also whether the journal is available in electronic or print format (or both). To search for journal articles on a specific topic, see the Find Journal Articles section of this guide.

Select electronic journal titles available at AU Libraries

  • E-journals at AU Libraries includes all subject areas, not just philosophy. You may select Philosophy and Religion from the subject category pull-down menu.

Journal Abbreviations: If you are working with an article citation, the title of the journal may be abbreviated. In many instances, you can do a journal title search in the library catalog using the journal abbreviation. If you are in doubt about what the journal abbreviation stands for, the database WorldCat will frequently translate the journal abbreviation into a full journal title (enter the abbreviation into the WorldCat "title" search box).

Can't find the journal in the library catalog? In most cases, you can obtain a copy of the journal article via interlibrary loan (ILL).  Delivery time for ILL varies, but you should allow at least 7-10 days for the requested item to arrive at our library.
