Tips for searching journals and newspapers
When it comes to find certain journals from the inventory of the University Library, the following procedure is recommended:
Call up the Katalog plus and enter one or more words from the journal title in the "Search" field.
You are looking for the journal "Journal of modern European history":
- You don't have to pay attention to upper and lower case letters
- Umlauts are also found in dissolved form and as a basic vowel
On the tab "Catalogue", you can get the hits from the holdings of the University Library.
To restrict the hit list to journals, select the source type "Zeitschrift" via "Refine search results".
You can select the required magazine title from the significantly smaller
number of hits. Call it up by clicking on the title in full display:
At the end of the tab "Bibliographic details" the necessary inventory information and the call number of the journal are displayed.
Switch to "Holdings Info" tab to view all access options:
Alternatively, you can select the „Advanced Search“ to enter the complete journal title in Katalog plus.
Enter the exact journal title with all words (including articles etc.) in the „Full Title“ category.
This search option is particulary usefull if the title of the journal title consists of only one word.
If you need an article from a journal or newspaper that is not available at the University Library, you can order it via Interlibrary loan.
