Parkes Library, Special Collections, Hartley Library: Journal Articles & Databases

The Parkes Library was established by James Parkes, a tireless campaigner against anti-Semitism, and is a major resource for the study of Jewish/non-Jewish relations across the ages.

Why Use Journal Articles?

  • Articles are more up-to-date than books
  • They offer greater detail and insight into research
  • Peer-reviewed articles are considered more reliable

How Do I Know If You Have It?

Found a good article? Now you need to know whether you can get the full text.

If you've run a database search, the article's record may have a "Full Text" or "PDF" link - that's great: click to get the full text. If not, look out for the Full Text Finder icon - click this to find out if we have access to the journal. 


Off-Campus Access

To connect to Library resources such as databases and journals you will need to use the University's VPN service called Globalprotect. Advice on how to set up your connection can be found on the iSolutions page How do I set up VPN on my device?

Do remember that whilst connected to the University's network - whether on campus, or at home using VPN - you are still bound by the University's regulations concerning acceptable use of computing facilities.

If you do have any problems or need help in setting up VPN, please contact the iSolutions Service Line
