The majority of journals held in Oxford, in both print and electronic formats, are catalogued in SOLO and can be searched for by title. If you are unable to find the journal you are looking for, you might be able to request a copy of the resource via our Document Supply and Inter-Library Loans service.
This guide introduces you to e-resources and aims to explain where you can find e-resources, if and how you can access them, and where you can get help.
If you want to find out more about how to use SOLO to search journals, then take a look at the video tutorials created by the iSkills team in their Workshops and Classes Libguide.

For more details, see the BrowZine Libguide, or take a look at the following:
Sometimes you may not be able to access a specific e-journal article on SOLO because it is too old, hasn't been indexed or we only have the journal available in print rather than online. This video shows you how to find a journal using the advanced search in SOLO, which enables you to browse e-journals and print journals for the article you need.
