How to use Library Search

Key journal article databases

You can use  "Library Search" to search across search a range of electronic journals but to ensure more relevant results we recommend you connect directly to one or more of the key business & management journal databases:

Journals A-Z list

We subscribe to over 42,000 unique electronic journals.

Access to e-journals on campus is normally automatic, although in some cases a username and password are required. This may be either your University central username and password, or another password stipulated by the publisher. Please read the accessing e-resources pages for full details.

You can also access services remotely by using the VPN service provided by the IT Services Division of the University.

Databases

Databases are the best way of finding peer-reviewed articles on your topic as they index and provide access to articles from thousands of different journal titles.

The University of Manchester Library subscribes to over 400 databases but not all of these will be relevant to your subject. You can find the key databases for your subject by using the Databases tab in this guide or by accessing the Databases A-Z list.

Google Scholar

It is worthwhile carrying out a search on Google Scholar for articles relevant to your topic.

If you search Google Scholar while on campus, you'll find links to the full text articles on the Library databases via the Findit@UML link.

Findit@UML

You will often see a 'Look for full text in other services using Find It' tab when looking through your search results in our electronic resources. This tab can be used to see if The University of Manchester Library has access to a particular article in either online or print format.

Articles not held by the library can be ordered via Document Supply and Inter Library Loan.

If you are using Google Scholar on campus, the Findit@Manchester link will appear automatically next to your list of search results.
