Now with Articles — The Library Catalog

By Demian Katz

A new semester is starting, and it probably won’t be too long before you need to find some information in the library. Fortunately, searching for library resources has just gotten easier!

The library catalog now has a new feature. In addition to searching for books in our collection, it also searches for full-text articles in dozens of our subscription databases. One search box gives you access to millions of resources, most of which you can’t find in Google.  Content included ranges from scholarly journal and newspaper articles to e-books and theses.

To try the enhanced catalog, search here .

Just type your search in the Library Catalog box and hit Find. Books and other resources found in Falvey Library will show up on the left under Books & more; articles and other electronic resources will display on the right under Articles & more.

Articles & more: The blue “Find It” buttons will help you locate full-text articles or request content from Interlibrary Loan. You can click on the tabs above the search results to refine your search and explore beyond the top ten results in each category.

Don’t give up if you don’t find what you need right away. Although our catalog should help with many of your search needs, it’s still just the tip of the iceberg.  You can also visit our Subject Guides for help with research in specific subject areas, or you can connect with a librarian online if you need a bit of human assistance.

Have fun searching, and please feel free to contact us if you have questions or problems. We will use your feedback to continue to improve our online tools.
