College of Veterinary Medicine

Electronic Journals

Access to electronic journals change frequently and few journals provide unlimited free access to full text articles. Many journals sites provide only abstracts and tables of contents while others just provide advertising. The lists below give sites that provide either full-text access or information about access to journal literature.

Electronic journals at K-State

This list is maintained by the technical services department at Kansas State University’s Hale Library. Most of the journals are restricted to KSU faculty, staff and students and cover all topics. These require using your eID when using an off-campus computer. For questions about eIDs see eIDs at K-State or email helpdesk@k-state.edu
