Finding an article on the Library Catalogue search

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I really dislike the new platform. I can never find anything, and filtering from the left sideboard is horrendous. Nevertheless, can you please help me find Standards for Batterer Intervention Programs in Canada: A History and Review?

A. I searched the catalogue for the title and found a citation to the article you mention below by clicking the box at the top left 'Expand results beyond Library collection' [see screenshot]. The reason you cannot find it is because our holdings for this journal begin in 2009 and this article is from 1999. 

Dankwort, & Austin. (1999). Standards for batterer intervention programs in Canada: A history and review. Canadian Journal of Community Mental Health = Revue Canadienne De Santé Mentale Communautaire, 18(1), 19-38.

If you know the journal you can search for it by name to see our holdings information.  Go to the top menu in the catalogue and click on A-Z Journals.

You can request this article via our Interlibrary Loan service. There are a few ways to do this. One way is if you have the followed the step above (expand beyond collection), click on the title. If you are not signed then do so, and then in the record display you can click the link to Interlibrary Loans. This will take you to the request form with many of the details already filled out.  [see screenshot]
