Refining the search
You can use the sidebar on the left-hand side of the page to narrow your results. Some options include narrowing your results to
articles only, articles for which the full text is available, or peer reviewed journal articles. You can also narrow your search to other formats: for example, academic journals or books. Don't forget to click the "more" button to see other options!
CatalogPlus or Catalog?
Your search will default to CatalogPlus, which searches the library's online materials (journal articles, eBooks, etc.). If you want to view only books that you can borrow from Gumberg, switch your view to Catalog using the tabs under the search box.
You are strongly encouraged to find .edu sites in this course. You can limit your Google search to .edu sources by using Google's Advanced Search function.
