The search box will search the University Libraries’ collections of physical and electronic materials, including books, eBooks, articles/book chapters in databases, DVDs, CDs, streaming media, and more.

To add the item to your Resource List, simply click the citation and then click the Add button in the bottom right hand corner of the citation that appears. Here are some examples of search results:
