DIT's Print Journals Now Listed in E-Journal Portal

DIT library services' holding of print journals are now included in the library's E-Journal portal .

This means the E-Journal portal is now a "one-stop shop" for determining whether the library owns a particular title in either electronic or print format.

For example, a search in the E-Journal portal for Journal of Marketing Management now indicates that, as well as being available online via Business Source Premier from 1985 to one year ago (due to the publisher's 1 year embargo), the title is also available in print in the library right up to the August 2010 issue.

This turns what was a for many users a two-step process (searching the E-Journal portal first, and then the Library Catalogue) into one easy step in the E-Journal portal.
