Time Magazine cover

What is an online magazine? An online magazine – ejournal - is a resource allowing up-to-the-minute articles be published and  distributed world wide in seconds via electronic transmission.  Menu driven databases are easily searchable with a title, date, and keyword option available. This saves times for researchers, journalists, students, teachers etc as the tedious work of trawling through endless magazines (in hard copy) to locate a subject topic no longer exists.  The library bears the brunt of any cost implications involved in subscribing to these ejournals as they are free to use by the public -just 20c per page for black and white print outs. Saving to a memory stick is not permitted due to licence agreements.

What ejournals do we have? The Business Information Centre provides access to a large number of ejournals via our subscription to 3 ejournal providers – Emerald, European Business ASAP – Infotrac and JSTOR.
