Find journal articles [and other resources] via "Library Search", the Libraries' interdisciplinary search & discovery service. [Use the "Search Box" on UVic Libraries website.]
"Library Search" offers an intuitive and fast search engine that helps you discover relevant information on any topic from the University of Victoria Libraries collections and searches through our collection of e-books, print books, scholarly journals, newspaper articles, video, dissertations, etc. Rather than searching for all of these formats and resources in separate databases, "Library Search" provides a single unified search box.
