You can look up the impact factor of individual journal titles through Science Direct. First click on Databases A-Z, find Science Direct on the list, and then click on that. You can then either browse by field, title, or article title. But to view the impact factor of a journal you will need to get to that journals home page within Elsevier/Science Direct.

When you find a journal, click on the "About this journal" link and it will take you to the journal link, which displays the numerical impact factor.

However, this information, a journals impact factor, about is often Google-able if you already know the title of the journal. The "about this journal" link is taking  you to a page often on the open internet.

However, we do not have access to the main database that really gets into the knitty gritty of this, ISI Web of Knowledge.
