11 Accessing Items through the Library Website On the library’s homepage, you can use the search box to find items on your topic in all of the library’s collections. In one search, you can find articles, books, and other items. To access these items, visit the library’s webpage at Enter search terms here to search all of the library’s collections at once. Find books, articles, and more when you search this way.

12 Refining Your Search Many searches retrieve thousands of records, and you may need to revise your initial search in order to find exactly what you need. As you can see, a search for “influenza vaccine effectiveness” finds over 12,000 items in the library’s collections.

13 Refining Your Search You could look within one of the recommended specialized collections.

14 Refining Your Search Look for certain types of items, such as journal articles, items published during a certain date range, or items labeled with the subject term that describes your topic.

15 Understanding Your Results When viewing search results, it is important to recognize the different types of items that your search can pull up. For example, our search on “yoga” returned various items such as a video recording, an eBook, and a journal article.

16 Understanding Your Results Now let’s take a closer look at the journal article. Title of the Article Journal Title Click here to access the article.

17 Customizing Your Search You can also design your search to target the kinds of items you want from the beginning instead of refining a broad search. Limit your search by: Author Publication Title Date Published Material Type And More
