Find @ UNC Button

PRO TIP: Always connect to Embase from a UNC Library website so you will see the Find @ UNC button.  Find @ UNC button

Find @ UNC in Embase

In Embase, the Find @ UNC button is located at the bottom of each article entry and to the left of the link that says "View Full Text."

Find @ UNC button in Embase

Use the Find @ UNC button to go to the online article. When you are off-campus you will be prompted to enter your Onyen / Password the first time you go to a full-text article.

When the article is not online via Find @ UNC, a page with other ways to get the article is displayed.

It is always worth trying a quick Google search to see if the article is freely available. Find @ UNC is not able to point to all of those and we are consistently surprised  by what we find freely available online.

Find @ UNC Other Options

When the Find @ UNC page informs you that we do not have online access to an article, scroll to the bottom of that page.

  1. Look to see if the page gives you another option, such as "Online Open Access"
  2. Look for the article in a print journal in the UNC-CH libraries
  3. Request it from another library via Interlibrary Loan

When we don't have electronic access to an article, scroll down to Step 2 to request it through interlibrary loan.

Search the Library Catalog

Search for the journal title in libraries' catalog

  • Click on "Look for this in print in the UNC Libraries" at the bottom of the Find @ UNC page.
  • Or go directly to the catalog to search for a journal. Use the full name of the journal, not the abbreviation.

In search results, select the journal, magazine, or periodical resource type filter option.

On the page for the journal:

  • Select Latest Received to see all recent issues that are still unbound.
  • Select +Expand to see a list of all bound volumes.          

Journals in the Health Sciences Library are shelved alphabetically by title, 1990 and more recent are on the 4th floor and older than 1990 are in the basement. 

You can order an electronic copy of any print article. Use the Interlibrary Loan form.
