E-Journals List changing to E-Journals Finder

The E-Journals List available on the library’s home page under Popular Resources will be changing to E-Journals Finder on Tuesday, October 6, 2015.

Advantages of the updated interface include:

  • Faster response!
  • Predictive, auto suggestion search, as you type.

The default browsing list of titles A-Z is gone, however EBSCO says this new searching platform reduces time to finding a journal from 2.5 minutes to just seconds. Browsing journal titles by discipline is available, however searching by journal title will be more common and useful.

Try out the new interface here:,guest&custid=s2861256&groupid=main&profile=pfi.

Let us know what you think!

Beware when you search:

  • Titles are displayed in relevance order, not just alphabetically by title. You can change the sort after your initial search.
  • Coverage dates for journals include month and date even if the range is the entire year. 01/01/2013-12/31/2015 is harder to read than 2013-2015, but at this time the month and date are always included.
  • The E-Journals Finder landing page will always be dynamic, session specific URL, so don’t bookmark something similar this: Instead, bookmark the library homepage and select E-Journals Finder link from there.
