From the Library's homepage, click on "Library Search" to access the catalog. Enter the journal title in the search field and click "Search." If the Library owns the journal you're looking for, you will see it listed in the results. The Library may own electronic or physical copies, or both.

If the Library owns an electronic copy of a journal, you can click on the "Online Access Options" link below the journal name to access the journal through one of the Library's licensed vendors. (Please note that vendors may only provide access to a specific range of publication dates. Also, if you do not see an end date, the date range runs to the present.)

To access an online journal article, click on the vendor name (e.g., American Medical Association, ebrary Academic Complete, EBSCOhost, etc.) under "Online Access Options" and navigate to the article you're looking for. Most vendors offer HTML and PDF versions of articles.

If the Library owns a physical copy of a journal, you can click on the "Availability and Request Options" link below the journal name to view request options. (If the journal is located in "OHSU Library Closed Stacks," you can sign in to request that a volume be pulled and put on hold for you.)

If the Library does not own a journal or journals in the date range you want, you may still be able to get an article by using Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Services.

You can also set up email alerts for journal articles.
