Options under Refine Results


  • The default is limited to Full Text. UNcheck that box!  Leave only "Available in Library Collection."  You will still get full-text links, and a much broader range of publications.
  • You can also use the filters under Refine Results to select "Academic Journals."

In some cases, you may wish to search discipline-specific databases directly. See above!
