Biosystems & Agricultural Engineering: Databases

Finding Journal Articles

There are two ways to access journals at the University of Kentucky; some journals are in print, while others are electronic.  To find print journals, search InfoKat Discovery by title, much like you would for a book.  For electronic journals, use E-Journals A-Z.  Once at E-Journals A-Z, search by the journal title.
