For many of our e-journals, our subscription entitles us to access articles online from a certain date of publication. Many publishers have now digitised their archives of older volumes (also known as backfiles), but often these are sold separately. We have bought many journal backfiles but not all of them. It's worth doing a title search of the library catalogue using the journal title. This tells you which years we have online, or in print. It may well be that we have older issues available in print in the library.

You can also search DISCOVER for the article title and follow the 'Is it @ Liverpool?' link. If there is not a link to a full-text version, select the options to search the catalogue by title and/or ISSN.

If the article is not available, use the ArticleReach option to try getting a copy from another library for free, or the interlibrary loans service.
