Search for the title of the journal in eJounals
Try searching in DelphiS for information on any topic. You will find things that the library has and may not have. Contact the Interlibrary Loan service to see if you can get the resource that the library does not own.
When you enter the details of the item that you want on the catalogue it will display a call number or code that tells you where the item is shelved.
The call number will usually look something like these examples:
TK 2380.45 GAR
B OCEAN (Physical) Kna
Although the codes look different, they work in much the same way: the combinations of letters and numbers gives a location based on the subject content of the item. The items are arranged on the shelves using the call numbers.
The library floor plan will show you where items with particular call numbers are stored
