You will find records for articles in iDiscover.   These records are mainly provided in iDiscover as a result of subscription access to journals purchased by the University from academic publishers.  Also included are records from Open Access journals, both fully OA and hybrid, and from OA repositories.   A search box for searching articles in iDiscover is available here, or use the "Articles and online resources" filter in iDiscover.

You may prefer to use Google or Google Scholar.  Google Scholar can be set up to display an "ejournals@cambridge" link alongside article citations.  This link will indicate that you have access to the article as a member of the University.   By clicking on the link you will be routed to the article.  If you are off-site you may be prompted to enter your Raven credentials in order to gain access.  To set up the display of "ejournals@cambridge" links in Google Scholar, go to Settings (three horizontal bars icon).   Click on Library links.   Search for Cambridge in the search box.  Tick the tick box for "University of Cambridge - ejournals@cambridge" and click Save.   The next time you use GS you will see the links to your entitled access as a member of the University.

There are many other databases and bibliographies available to you for more specific searching in your subject area or discipline.  We recommend you consult the LibGuide in your subject or visit the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z for a full list.   This link provides a search of the A-Z filtered to display Abstracting & Indexing (A&I) databases only so you can make an informed selection.
