"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.

UBC Library recently had a major upgrade to the Library Catalogue. To add a record to your RefWorks account, search for your items from within your RefWorks account.

1 )In RefWorks, click on Search in the top menu. Select:  Online Catalogue or Database

2) From the Online Catalog or Database to Search, select from the drop down menu: University of British Columbia

From here you can search by title (or author, descriptor, pub year). For example, this is a search by title:  Year of the Flood

3) Select the book(s) you want to import into your folder. Then click on the Import button.

a place of mind, The University of British Columbia
