The GeoRef database contains over 3 million references from around 3,500 journals, technical reports, books, and theses. Use GeoRef to find journal articles in geology, seismology, marine geology, geophysics, paleontology, petrology and geological maps, going as far back as 1669 for some topics. Use the UC-eLinks button in your search results list to find the full text of the articles.
This list provides access to online journals subscribed to by the UC San Diego Library. It does not search for articles! It only searches for journals, and then you can search for articles within that one journal.
If you would like to search for articles in more than one journal at the same time, search one of the article databases.
Request an article through Interlibrary Loan
Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the service libraries provide when they do not own the item you want. We will work with our partner libraries and borrow a book, video, or get a scan of a journal article at your request.
If working in a database, look for the Request link in UC-eLinks (see the How-to "Get Article in Full-text").
Know the details of a specific citation you need? If so, use Citation Linker to look for it in UCSD's collection and make your request if we don't have it (see the How-To "Find a Specific Article").
Check the status of or renew an ILL item? For details on how to, see Viewing Your ILL Requests on Using My Library Account tab.
Get directions on how to use the Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access e-journals, databases and electronic reserve materials. These materials are restricted so that only current UC San Diego faculty, staff and students can view them from off-campus.
