Finding Journals: Guide


Finding Journals


The Library has a large range of journals that are available for you to access and use as a student, researcher or staff member of RGU.

Most of the time you will be using the databases to search for a full range of journal articles on a topic but sometimes you may want to find out if we have a specific journal title, what years we have, if it is online or in print and how you can access it.

This guide gives information about what journals are available in print and shows you how to use the LibrarySearch service to find and access eJournals.




Finding Print Journals


You can find out what journals are available at RGU in print by using either the excel or PDF list linked below.

The list tells you the journal title, the ISSN, where to find the journal and what years are available. For example:

Please note that the date information for the print journals is being reviewed.

Once you have found the journal title you are interested in:

  • If the journal is available on level 8 you can then come in and locate the journal on the shelves.
  • If it is available in the level 2 store please make a request with the reception desk for it to be retrieved.
  • If you are a distance learner you can make a request for an article from the journal to be sent to you (click here for more information).




Finding eJournals using LibrarySearch


To find out if we have a journal online you can use the new LibrarySearch.

You can find a LibrarySearch box on the library home page or by following this link to go to the main LibrarySearch page.

When using the main LibrarySearch page simply enter the title of the journal in the search box, choose journal from the drop-down menu and then search.


You will then be shown a page of results and if your journal is available online from RGU you will find it in the list.

To find out what years are available and to access the journal click available online. This will take you to the full record and give you links to get to the journal home page, log in when prompted to get access.

Please note if you are searching for a journal from the library home page simply do a search for the journal title and then use the resource type filter on the results page to narrow down your results to journals.
