Searching For Articles & Books

The “Search Everything” box is also located on the library’s homepage. It will let you access the majority of the Library’s resources (online and print) with a single search. Search Everything searches across all the records in the Library’s catalogue, plus millions of full-text articles.

In addition to providing an easy to use search interface, Search Everything allows you to:

  • Limit your search results to Scholarly or Peer-Reviewed articles
  • Refine your search results by Content Type, Subject Terms, Publication Date,
  • Access full text for the majority of resources found
  • Sort results by relevance or date

Below are a few videos that you should review to learn how to use Search Everything more effectively.
