Your searches will also go through reputable open access databases such as PubMed.

Getting Started

Discover Search: In Discover Search, simply type your keyword or topic into the search box, and the most relevant results will appear for your research. Explore a variety of content from journals to e-books. With easy filtering options on the left side, you can narrow your results to the type of content, publication, date, (and more) to find exactly the information resources you need. To complete your search, select Search.


Advanced Search : In Advanced Search, combine various drop-down options with Boolean operators. As you build your search, the search syntax will appear within the search box. To complete your search, select Search.

Citation Matcher

The Citation Matcher is an exact article finder. The Citation Matcher is used when searching for a specific article and requires enough information to locate it accurately. If you know DOI or PMID of an article you are searching, you can enter in the Citation Manager search box  or you can expand Citation Manager, and enter Title, Author, Journal, etc. 

Once you have entered enough information to uniquely identify one single article, select Match to bring up the result. You will be presented with a window offering you various methods of accessing the item.

Clicking on any of the Read Article links will bring you to a page from which you can access the full text of the item. In the event the full-text article is not available, you may be prompted to complete and submit a Document Delivery form to request access.
