Use the catalog to find electronic or print journals

To find out if the library owns a journal go to the Catalog (UNC-CH Libraries).

Type the full name of the journal (not the abbreviation) in the text box. Use the PubMed Journals Database to translate the journal title abbreviation into the journal title. 

Your search will be more efficient if you change the dropdown box to "in Journal Title."  Then click the Search button.
