Auburn University pays for online access to many journals. The easiest way to access an online article is via a link that takes you directly to the article. When the link fails, or asks you for money, try the following.
- Library Catalog
- Search the library catalog as described below for print journals, but in step 5 choose the catalog record for the electronic journal. This will find the same information about our electronic access as the E-Journals page, but in a less compact form.
- Ebsco Find Full Text
- Click on the link for Ebsco Find Full Text in database such as Web of Science, MEDLINE, CAB, Agricola, Biological Abstracts, Zoological Record, SciFinder, SPORTDiscus, and Google Scholar.
Much of the older literature, and some of the recent literature, is only available in print for Auburn Univeristy researchers. To find out whether Auburn University has the journal you need in print, for the year(s) that you need, search the library catalog by journal title. After finding the record in the library catalog, look carefully to determine whether the library has the year that you need. The record will also tell you where to find the journal. It may be in the Cary Veterinary Medical Library, the RBD Library (the main campus library), or in Closed Stacks. To get a copy of an article in a print journal held by Auburn University Libraries, you can either go to the library and make a photocopy or use AUBIExpress.
