To access print journals you need to browse the journal titles in the library catalogue, ALEPH . In ALEPH, click Browse then select Journal Title from the drop-down menu, and type in the title of the journal. The catalogue record for the journal will give you the shelf-number you need to locate the journal on the shelves. It will also tell you which volumes of the journal are kept by the library - look for the Holdings field in the record for this information.
