How to Find

[Go to Research Guides and More]

  • UK Libraries provide over 300 specialized databases
  • to find specialized databases, consult RESEARCH GUIDES by Subject.
    • Once you have identified an article and a journal title,
    • Use E-Journals Database to find the e-journal.
    • Most electronic journals can be accessed from off campus by UK faculty, students and staff by following the instructions for proxy server access.
    • To determine if the UK Libraries has a particular journal in paper, search  InfoKat, for the title of the journal to obtain the library location and call number and the years and volumes owned. Currently, only selected electronic journals are listed in InfoKat, so always check the E-Journals Database to see if we have electronic access.
