Searching for Resources

In our library catalogue, search by a topic (for example: Hinduism). Find a relevant book in your results list, and then look for accurate subject headings in the Description section of the Details screen. Once you know the subject headings for your topic, do a subject (su:) search. Use the filters on the left side of the catalogue screen to limit your results to ebooks, print books, publication year, etc. For more help on searching, go to our library website.

  • OR finds results with EITHER term         


Go to EBSCOhost services and select EBSCOhost Web.  Then choose your database(s) and create a search. You may limit your results  by using the filters on the left-hand side of the screen. For example, recently published (in the past 5 years),  and full text articles in peer reviewed journals.  For more help with EBSCOhost databases, go to the library website and look under the Databases tab.
