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.

You can renew your book loans by logging into your Smart Search account. For more information, please refer to this help page.
