What are Find Journals, FindIt, and IMPULSE?
What is the difference between the Health Sciences Library’s Find Journals web portal, FindIt, and the IMPULSE library catalog? FindIt is a discovery tool that integrates journal articles, books, dissertations and the universe of findable information. You should use IMPULSE to find Health Sciences Library physical items such as books, reserves, and audiovisual materials. You can also use IMPULSE to access to the PROSPECTOR statewide library borrowing system.
However, IMPULSE will not let you know what online journals the library carries. The Find Journals web portal includes all of the Health Sciences Library’s print as well as its complete online journal holdings.
