Finding a specific journal article

To check whether a specific journal article is available online, use the Library’s Find known item (Citation Linker) to conduct your search and locate the article. Enter as many details as possible to narrow your search results. Citation Linker can also be used to locate specific journal and book titles.

Requesting articles not held at SCU

First check the SCU Catalogue to see if we have the journal / article in our collection. If not held, we can request a copy from another library for you.

To do this click the Request a non-SCU item button which appears at the top of the Catalogue screen. Our friendly staff then locate a library which holds the journal.

For postgraduate students there is no charge for this service if the item is held in another Australian library.
