To see if the library has a specific journal, search in TrinCat for the journal title.
On the results page, check the location of the journal. If it says "Deerfield Periodical Collection" it is in print in the library. If it says "Electronic Journal" it is available online. Check the dates to make sure the year you want is available.
If the journal is not in TrinCat, you can request the article by borrowing from another library.
Online articles from the databases can be used in your courses.
You may download a pdf and store it in Moodle for your students to access.
Or you can link to the full-text article within a database. Be sure to use the permalink that is found within the EBSCO databases. (The link in the address bar is temporary and will not work after a short period of time.) See an example of how to find the permalink.
Articles can be requested from other libraries using ILLiad.
The first time you use ILLiad, you will need to sign up for a new account.
Articles will be scanned and available for download through ILLiad, usually within a few days.
