Articles & More Search
One of the options in the large search box on the library website is Articles & More, a kind of search engine for research materials including scholarly journals, books and other documents. It is like a mini-Google search retrieving results from many of the library's print, digital and subscribed resources. 
The strength of Articles & More is that it allows you to do a quick keyword search across many of our resources at the same time, providing a comprehensive view of all types of information in many different formats (books, journal articles, etc) available on a topic.

     Keep in Mind...

  • Articles & More searches many, but not all, library resources.
  • Detailed searches should be done in subject specific databases
  • The library catalog is indexed separately from Articles & More. Use the Books & Media Tab to search for print books and other physical items that are not included in Articles & More search results.
