Problems & Tips

Difficulty finding specific journal titles

It is sometimes a challenge to find a specific journal or database title in the WU Libraries Search system. Here are a few tips to help you find what you need:

  • For journal titles, use the facets on the left side of the screen to refine by Resource Type = journals
  • Another option is to use the Databases and Guides tabs from the Libraries' home page.

Access to items in WorldCat

  • WorldCat items are currently not available in the WU Libraries Search, we recommend that you use Summit/Worldcat. Links to borrow these items should be presented on the WorldCat record.

Citing sources found in a WU Libraries Search

  • The ability to easily get a formatted citation is not currently possible in this system. We have requested that the vendor develop this functionality.
  • You can still get citations by re-executing your search in Summit/Worldcat and use the citation style functionality there, or use RefWorks.
