Search Feature for Journals Frustration

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I hate the new search feature for journals. It used to be so much easier to just look up electronic journals. Now I have to plough through all journals, get offered papers from the journal that I don't
want and have to know the exact name of the journal. This is much more time consuming that the old method which was excellent.

A. Are you working with A-Z Journals, as linked from the catalogue home page?

Another approach to finding a particular title is to use the Browse Search feature and search by title.

We are still learning the tricks of the new search ourselves, and welcome suggestions for improvement.

Thanks for your patience,
