Looking for journal articles? Try Articles-Express!

Unitec Library subscribes to thousands of high quality eJournals which contain useful articles for your assignments and research. Our new Articles-Express search tool makes it easy to access those articles. Articles-Express delivers search results VERY FAST and there is no need to login to do the search.

Search for and access articles  in 4 easy steps:

  1. Select the Articles-Express search option
  2. Enter your search terms eg "black and white ruffed lemurs"
  3. Click search - and a list of relevant articles will display instantly
  4. To access the full-text of an article just click on the title of the article (if you are off campus or using a mobile device you may be prompted to login with your Unitec login at this point).


Articles-Express coverage includes these publishers and collections. You can use Articles-Express to search over 150 million articles, many available as full text. However, for commercial reasons Articles-Express does not include all the journals that we subscribe to especially some of the ones published in New Zealand. If you can't find what you're looking for try these other search options:

Note about name

We have named this search tool "Articles-Express" but the supplier (Ex Libris) calls it the "Primo Central Index". Many academic libraries around the world use this tool but often call it different names. See more information from Ex Libris about the Primo Central Index.


We are still fine-tuning the configuration of Articles-Express so please contact our systems admin team if you spot any bugs, or leave a comment below.
