Have a research question?

Email us at or call 786-3703 or 786-3877!

How do I...?

Use OneSearch to search for books and electronic resources in a single search!


Use databases to find an article. Your search will yield different results in each database, so make sure you read the descriptions to find out which database is best for your research. Go to A-Z List 


When in doubt, start with: Academic Search Complete. Also view the Research Guides for help with research in a specific subject.


Use these tips to improve your search.


If you need an article that isn't available in any of our databases, you can request it through ILL.

If you're off-campus, you'll be prompted to login after selecting a database.
