Search tips:

  • Find is located at the top right corner of every page. Find searches the authors, titles, and dates of all documents in the library. Find does not search the full text of documents.
  • Use the Search option to search within the text of documents. Use Search for documents containing this Exact Phrase to get the most exact search of document texts. Other full-text search options are broader and will retrieve many more documents, which may contain the words you want out of context.
  • Use Sort your results to arrange large document retrieval to find what you want more easily. You can sort by editors choice, which is those documents the editors think are most important, alphabetically by author or title, and by date.
