Strengthening your search

Clicking the boxes to guarantee that your results are full-text and peer reviewed (scholarly) articles will result in finding the types of college level publications that your professors are looking for.

Using the dropdown arrows to the right of the search boxes will insure that your search terms appear in areas that make them stronger, like in a subject heading or abstract, rather than just a random spot in an article.

Performing an "Advanced Search", which allows you to enter a number of terms and use boolean logic to link them, will result in a smaller number of more precise articles that are spot on with the search terms you entered.


Choose a search scope in the dropdown menu or access advanced search through this link. 

  • Everything: Searches every type of material accessible through the Lewis Library, including print books, e-books, journals, newspapers, etc. 
  • Library Catalog: Searches physical items, such as print books, print journals, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks immediately available through the Library
  • Articles: Searches databases for digital materials such as academic journal articles, newspaper & magazine articles, reports, and reference entries. You can also search the databases directly to take advantage of additional search features
  • Course Reserves: Searches textbooks and other materials reserved by instructors

Databases contain journal articles, ebooks, media, and news resources. 

Enter title keywords to find a specific database. For example, Academic OneFile or JSTOR. Or browse them by subject here.  



Enter a keyword to search for Library research guides for your class or topic. For example, ENG101 or Nursing.
