LibrarySearch Help

This guide provides information on the different ways you can use LibrarySearch to locate print and electronic resources.

Finding Articles in LibrarySearch

LibrarySearch allows you to search a selection of the research databases available through the UO Libraries. The boxes below describe the two ways you can locate articles via LibrarySearch. Remember you are only seeing a small portion of the articles available through our databases, for more refined searching go directly to specific our database list.

Searching for Articles by Keyword

The best way to refine your search to find only articles is to use the "Articles" option from the dropdown menu. Enter keywords that represent the topic you are researching. We recommend starting with a couple words that represent the main concepts of the topic. Use AND, OR, NOT to help with your searching. See the "Performing a Basic Search" page for more information.

Searching for Articles by Title

Use the "Articles" option from the dropdown menu to limit your search to only articles. If you know the name of the article you are looking for you can also change the default to "Title" and enter the article title. If we have either the full-text (PDF) or the abstract of the article the results should come back with a match. If the article is not found, place an Interlibrary Loan request for the item.
