Q. electronic portal...before there was a place to find if we had the journal electronically. I can't seem to find on the new system...does it
I agree with you, the old E-journal portal was very useful but unfortunately no longer available.
The only comparable tool I can offer is LinkSource Citation Search accessible via:
This is also accessible through the Library hompage http://libguides.oldwestbury.edu/content.php?pid=481885
Scroll down to the second to last link on the left: "Find E-Resources by Title or Citation"
You can also use the online catalog OWLCat to search for journal holdings: http://old.sunyconnect.suny.
