Use the general search box on the CKN home page. Eg, copy and paste article title details into CKN search box on the home page.

NOTE, CKN search now defaults to full text available via CKN. If you can't find your reference, deselect CKN Full text option under Refine Results section (left hand side).

For CKN search results, you may find 3 options for your reference, either:

  • PDF attached and available for download - save a copy or print OR
  • CKN  Full Text link - means it's available from one of the many CKN sources, click it to find full text OR
  • Request this item | then a Request this item from your local HHS Library link option will present on next screen. Clicking on this link will pre-populate the online request form, select your HHS from the list (ie either CHHHS or TCHHS for Cairns Hospital Library & Knowledge Centre). Fill in your details and send. We'll contact you when we find the article or if we have problems getting a copy.

Alternatively, use CKN ALL eJournals & eBooks search to locate the specific journal for full text (online) copies of articles. LKC has very few current journals and we rely on CKN eJournals for access.

Search ALL eJournals & eBooks search to check if the publication (eg journal) is held on CKN.

  • Limit by Journals (refine search) if you have too many titles.
  • Each journal title may have one or several links for full text access.
  • Check the years listed to see if they match with your reference.

If no results for your specific journal title search on CKN, then you'll need to request the article via LKC or your local QH library.

Still can't find your article? The LKC can try to get a copy for you using our document supply or interlibrary loan networks. Just send us an article request form which will also ensure we comply with copyright.
