Finding Articles with Omni Search

Search the library's holdings for articles, books and other resources using Omni Search.

Omni Search can be found on the Library website.

To start, enter your keywords into the Search bar. 

Omni Search results include articles, books and eBooks, streaming video and more. 

You can limit your search results using one or more of the options on the left, under Tweak Your Results.

For example:

Available online: Your search results will mainly be articles

Peer-Reviewed Journals: Your results will include only peer-reviewed journal articles

Articles (or Newspaper Articles, Conference Proceedings, etc.): Select the type of resource you're looking for

Advanced Search

Omni Search has an Advanced Search option. 

To narrow your search for an article, you can include details such as:

  • an author's name
  • one or more words in the title
  • a date range
  • the type of material you are interested in

If you are searching for a specific article, you can also use the Citation Finder.

This search tool is similar to the Advanced Search pictured above, but allows you to include more details about the article you're looking for.
