Useful Tip: Start typing the question using natural language, or type the keywords that you are interested in.

I have found something I want to read. I think it is a journal article but I'm not sure.

I have recently returned to study and accessing the library resources is very different from when I was last an uni! How do I search for the item I've found and check whether it is a journal article?

To answer your query, it is best to start at the University Library homepage. To go to the homepage, click the 'Library' link at the top of the University homepage, or type directly into your browser.

Next, access the rainbow-coloured Summon search box at the top of that page and type (or paste) in the article title. To make sure you return only that title, enclose it within quotation marks, eg. "Playing it down/playing it up: girls'strategic negotiations of academic success".

This search should return the result you are looking for, and the record will show you whether it is a journal article or a book. Click on the title to access the article within the database containing it. (If it is a hardcopy book, the record will show the shelf location and library in which it is held; if it is an eBook, click the title to open the book.)

Summon is a discovery tool that searches most of the Library's electronic and physical holdings simultaneously, so a search will return a range of journal articles, books, reports etc that answer your query. Use the refinements in the left column to filter your results.
