Finding e-Journals at Carnegie Mellon

Use Cameo
Rather than provide you with a subset of journals that is arbitrarily defined as a list of physics journals, this page will review the steps needed to take to find an electronic journal at Carnegie Mellon. Identifying what we have access to has proven to be a challenge. Many of our electronic journals can simply be located using CAMEO, our online catalog. This only provides access at the journal title level - searching for articles within a journal requires the use of a database.

Use SFX to Locate a Journal Hidden in a Fulltext Database
As our access to digital literature has become more complex, the University Libraries has obtained a piece of software called SFX. In addition to pointing the user to the full text of articles when he is in a database with the new "GET IT" button, SFX keeps track of electronic journals even if the full text is buried in a general literature database like ProQuest or LexisNexis. We've used SFX to create an SFX alphabetical list.

Don't Forget the Reference Librarian
If at any time you want us to double check to see if we have access to a particular journal, please don't hesitate to ask.
