For overall guidance, go to the Cambridge LibGuide for eresources & ejournals
Electronic resources are generally bought centrally, so that they are then available across all departments and colleges. The link above is used to recommend journals or databases. Please note that it is very unlikely to be a rapid process.
Track down an electronic journal
Check the e-journals homepage for details of supplier / publisher platforms for all titles, and the date ranges available in full text. It may be that a journal's whole run from volume 1 is not available to us, or not on every platform.
See the note on that home page: "To recommend a new ebook title, please liaise with your department or faculty library"

In some cases we have access to entire collections of e-books, not just individual titles. This is one example.
Find out about this new method some publishers are using to deposit their books at the UL.
The account and password are the key to obtaining access, especialy from outside Cambridge.
This page from the UL offers the Cambridge Libraries Widget, advice on reference management tools, and various news feeds.
