Problems accessing e-Resources

Find articles about a topic

Many databases allow you to discover relevant articles by searching with keywords. A complete list can be found on the Key Databases A-Z. There will be a link to the full text online or print location where available. 

The Article Search tab will allow you to search across all Queen's Library's journal subscriptions. An initial search with a few keywords will bring a list of results which will allow you to focus further using the facets on the left hand side. Alternatively there is an Advanced search option at the top of the results screen. 

Designing a search strategy will make your search effective.
