"But is it online?!"

As you may have noticed, there have been some changes in how the UBC Online Public Access Catalogue (the OPAC) looks. One change involves the addition of a blue “Action Box” on the right when you look at an item’s record. For print journals and ejournals this Action Box means the following:

  1. within print journal records, you will see within the Action Box –if the record has an issn. The UBC eLink button searches our SFX knowledgebase to try and find a link to an online version of the journal.
  2. within ejournal records, you will see within the Action Box (the Online Access button also appears for ebooks). This button means there should be online access to full-text articles in the journal.

And as always, if you have any questions, please use our Help Form.

a place of mind, The University of British Columbia
