Finding journal articles on DiscoverEd

If searching for a known item in DiscoverEd e.g. journal article, book, etc., use a combination of title and author keywords.

–> Search DiscoverEd

When searching for a journal article use keywords from the article title not the journal title.

For example, if you were looking for this journal article:

Beyes, T. (2010) ‘Uncontained: The art and politics of reconfiguring urban space’, Culture and Organization, 16 (3), pp. 229-246.

You could do a search using the author’s name, Beyes, and keywords from the article title e.g. “uncontained”, “art” and “politics”. DiscoverEd will look for items that include all the keywords in the item record.

Each individual record in DiscoverEd has its own permalink which you can find in the Actions drop-down menu, which makes linking to records in DiscoverEd quick and easy to do.

More details on this will be made available prior to the launch of DiscoverEd.
