Locate is the Library's on-line catalogue and resource discovery system.
In the Books, Journals, Media tab you will find: books, e-books, print and electronic journals, streamed videos or DVDs and sound recordings. You will also find items from Coventry University’s Institutional Repository.

You can use the Subject Resources link at the top of Locate to search for journal databases by subject area (e.g. Westlaw, SAE, Academic Search Complete). You will also find other useful resources here e.g. newspaper databases, statistical websites and subject-specialist internet resources. 

Use the Articles Search tab if you are unsure about which database you need to use and want to search for journal articles on a topic. You will need to sign in to Locate to do this.

If you want to browse our ejournals to see which titles we take you can use the e-journals A-Z tab.
