You can refine your search from the options on the left of your search results under the Refine by heading.

These will give you different options to limit your search results, like Availability, Format, Location and more.

After you have selected some of those options to refine your search, they will appear at the top left side of the screen under ​Current Refinements​. ​To remove them, simply click on the X​ button to the right of it.

Under the Refine by options there will be the Related Searches heading, where you will find Related topics, a list of topics related to your search, and Additional Suggestions to your search.

 

Journal Articles

  • If you are looking for a specific Article, select the Articles tab, type the title of the article in the search box and click Go.

  • If you don’t have a specific Article in mind, select the Articles tab and enter your keyword(s)/topic(s) in the search box and click Go

You can use the options on the left to limit your results by Language, Format, Journal Title, Publication Year​ and more.

Click on the Check for Full Text link, ​next to the article's title, to see if the library has access to the full text of the article. Some articles will have a PDF link next to the title that will direct you straight to the full text of the article.

Advanced searching isn’t available in the Article search, you can search for an article by title, author or keyword but a combination of keyword and author will not give you desirable results. For that it is advisable that if you want to do an advanced search on a subject you should also search the library’s databases. You can search for a specific database on our A-Z list of the library’s online resources or have a look at our research guides by subject to see what resources we have on a specific subject.

If you find an article you are interested in and is not available from the library you can request it using ArticleRequest.
