Some of the libraries' journal content is from JSTOR, ProQuest, and EBSCO. These vendors give us access to many journals on a delayed basis. We often use the term embargo. A 12 month embargo means that we get full text access only after 12 months passes from original publication. There are also often articles published under a label such as "Advance Access," for articles accepted and published but not assigned to an issue. Those will often be delayed for additional time from publication date. That is, a 12 month embargo might involve greater than a 12 month delay from publication in an issue.
We often have access to journals through more than one source. See eJournals on library webpage (center in August 2021). Also, we have a high-functioning system for accessing journal articles from other libraries, ILLiad.
