Advanced Tip

The Search box on the library homepage (and on the Welcome tab of this guide) is limited to full-text by default.

If you’re doing advanced research, consider “unclicking” the full-text limiter. (It’s in the upper left part of the search-results screen.) You’ll get citation data for articles that the library doesn’t have access to. But we can often get those articles for you via inter-library loan, which is a free service whereby we borrow items we don’t have from other libraries.
