Passworded Journals

If a journal is password protected, the username and password can usually be found in the Check-In Record notes or the Order Record notes. Sometimes these password-protected archives are useful for verifying the latest issue, enumeration, and checking for skipped issues.

For example, notice the title Architects’ Journal. Since one of the journal’s internet holdings need a password, it is denoted as a “UARK Passworded Journal” and the public is directed to the service desk:

Serials staff can obtain the username and password from the check-in record and/or the order record, displayed like this (whited out for security purposes):

Note: For these titles, a periodic review of the passworded online issues is necessary to ensure the password is still valid and the link still directs to the archives as intended.
