Smart Search: Help



Smart Search is our universal search, great for searching across the Library for articles, books, videos, journals, etc.

Limit to peer-reviewed only using the option on the left side of the search results (under Availability). Not sure what peer-reviewed is? Learn more.

A good first step is to search for the title in Smart Search. Not there? Watch this short tutorial for another method.

For an article, click "Full text available" for a list of databases that have it available. For an e-book, click "Online access" to view it.

Check out our Citation Resources guide for help with APA, MLA, and more.

Contact a librarian if you are stuck on a particular citation, or the Writing Center for more extensive help.
