WSU Lists its electronic journal holdings in two locations. First, electronic journals can be found by searching by title in Search It. References to electronic journals in Search It have hypertext links to the electronic journal themselves or the database that contains that electronic journal. The second place to look to check to see if the library has a subscription to an electronic journal is on the WSU Electronic Journals list. If you cannot find a journal that you have reason to believe should be available at WSU, or you would like to have electronic access to, please contact Holly Luetkenhaus.
