This tool is designed for quick and efficient cross-database/catalog searching and discovery of library resources.
- Articles & Databases
Article indexes and databases available through the Library. Search these resources to find articles on your topic in journals, magazines, and newspapers. Indexes and databases are available via the alphabetical listing, or divided by broad subject area.
- Citation Linker
If you already have an article citation, Citation Linker allows you to type in the citation and link to a menu of options for finding the full text of the article.
- Journal Holdings List
Use this list to find out whether the Library owns a particular journal, magazine, or newspaper, as well as the dates and formats available. Search by title.
- Google Scholar
Google Scholar can help you find both books and articles, but if you use Google Scholar from off campus, configure the settings to use Andersen Library's full text subscription access.
Reference Universe looks for entries in reference books, such as encyclopedias, owned by the Library. Reference Universe works when searched using simple methods, such as searching for a few words or a phrase.
After running a search, click on "X Index Entries" or "X Article Title" to get the page numbers of the entry and then click on the book title to get the location and call number. Once you get this information you can find the book in the library, or click on the ebook link to view it online.
