Find eJournals

Transcript: Find an eJournal - New England Journal of Medicine:

Hi, I’m Rebecca and I’m a Reference Librarian at Lehman College. Your professor has given you a list of journals that you can research and review articles from. Let me show you how to find the journals on our library databases. On Google, type in Lehman College. Click on Lehman. On the Lehman website scroll up to Library. And on the library website you’re going to click on the E-Journals tab. This will pop up and it says: Find eJournals by title. Title begins with. You’ll type in the title, a journal name. So let’s find the The New England Journal of Medicine. Click Search. Give that a few seconds. You’ll see there are one to three results and it shows us where the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) is, what databases carry this journal. You’ll see it will tell you what year it starts and when it ends. The Public Health Database has journals from (NEJM) from 1980 to three months ago. The NEJM, we actually have that, it’s from 1990 to the present. So let’s click on that one. When you click on it’s going to ask you for your library barcode, that’s when you enter your library barcode. I’ll enter mine, you can enter yours. Enter or click on log in. It leads us right into the NEJM. So there are a few things you can do while you’re here. You can Search for a particular topic. You can just enter the keyword. Maybe we can type in Coronavirus since that’s a very recent, current topic. Coronavirus. And here we have different articles from the NEJM. The original article from Feb 28, 2020. “Clinical Characteristics of Coronavirus Disease 2019 in China.” It gives us different articles on that. So let’s click on this first one. It gives us the Title Name (Clinical Characteristics of Coronavirus Disease 2019 in China), the Authors (Guan et al.), the Year it was Published (2020), the DOI or Digital Object Identifier (10.1056/NEJMoa2002032), and then it gives us the Abstract which is a summary of this article. The Methods that were used, the Results, Conclusions and you can scroll right through. You could also go back (by clicking on the NEJM) and on the top you can scroll over Specialties and see what’s of interest. Click on Topics. Maybe you want to talk about Health Policies. Let’s click on there. Ok, here are different health policies, Perspectives, Interviews. OK there are different perspectives, information, Multimedia and I’m going into more details but you get the picture. You can also click on Current Issues if you want the most recent issue of the NEJM and these are the current, most recent articles written. OK? I hope that helps in your initial search of finding journals and in this particular one, NEJM. Thank you and I’ll see you soon. Bye.
