Results List

After your search, you can narrow your results to books, articles, or to any number of resources by using the filters on the left and top.


Click on the title of a book to learn more about it, including in which library it is located and its call number for finding it on the shelf.

Journal Articles

To access the full-text of an article, click on the title and click on one of several full-text links that appear.

You can read, download, and print the full text of the article.

Finding Items Using Subjects

When you find a book or article that works really well for your project, you can use the subject headings to find more resources just like it. Subject headings group like items together. All items on the same topic will have the same headings. Scroll down and click on the most relevant subject(s) to perform a new search.

After you click on the subject headings, you can add keywords to your search.
