What Happened to TDNet?

As you may have noticed, there are no longer any links to the journal locator service from TDNet on the Library's web site. The TDNet service has been replaced with a new journal locator service from Serials Solutions. Look for links labelled 'Journal Locator' on the Library's home page, Resources menu and A-Z Database page.

The Journal Locator provides a method for you to locate over 8000+ unique journal titles in article databases from both the Kresge and University libraries, such as ABI-Inform/ProQuest, Business Source Complete, Kluwer, Blackwell, Emerald, Springer and Elsevier-Science Direct. Search by journal name or browse titles, either alphabetically or by subject. Links to the Kresge Library print holdings are included.

The Journal Locator is the place to start if you are trying to find out which database to use to search the Harvard Business Review, Academy of Management Review, or other journal title.
