Finding Books & More

Creating a Great Online Search (and Managing Your Results)

  • Be specific when you search, using multiple keywords to describe your question.
  • In library databases, use “Limit by Subject” and “Subject: Thesaurus Terms” to focus your search to subject terms used in that database.
  • In addition to printing articles, keep in mind that you may also email them to yourself or save them to your M: drive so you may retrieve documents from home or on campus.
  • Remember that you can also email yourself the citation for an article from the email function, or use the "Cite" button to view and copy a citation from the screen.
  • If an item does not have a PDF or HTML full-text link, click on “Find It!” to see if the article may be found in full-text somewhere outside the database you are using.  This will also allow you to see if Miami owns the periodical in print or microform at one of our libraries. 
  • If there are articles that cannot be found in full-text from other Miami or OhioLINK Libraries, you may use Interlibrary Loan to request articles from other libraries.
  • Ask a librarian!  We are happy to help you.
