I love Google Scholar, I think of all the academic search engines it presents things in the most user friendly way.
Most libraries (even local public libraries) have their own site you can log into, and if you use things like Google Scholar through their proxy it will come up with all the links that the organisation has access to. If you don't attend a university you can often go to their library an access their catalogue and system, just stay within their library page and you often don't need log in details. Alternatively, you can even pay for library access which is pretty cheap considering the costs of having to pay for access to the journals. Even if you're studying by distance or through a small technical college it can be worth paying for access to a full university library.
