Basic Search Tips for Most Databases & Library Catalog

Find more (broaden your results) with OR and wildcards:
     dog or canine   (finds either term, often including simple plurals, e.g., dogs or canines)

*   (finds obedience or obedient)   

Find less (narrow your results) with AND:
     dogs and obedience training   (finds both terms)

Find less with NOT:
     toys not poodles   (excludes records that mention poodles)

Find less by selecting limiters (peer-reviewed, date, publication type, etc.)
Use quotation marks for an "exact phrase"

For OneSearch:
  • natural language works well
  • CAPS are required for AND and OR
  • use parentheses to nest terms when using both AND and OR
  • select filters (limiters) on results screen
Sample searches for OneSearch:

     how body image affects women
     "body image" AND women
     "body image" AND (women OR girls)
     (prejudic* OR discriminat*) AND (islam* OR muslim*)

Find Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Need a Book or Article Not Held by UH?

If no University of Houston library has the item you need, you may submit an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request.  UHCL Library will attempt to acquire the item from another library.  ILL requests may be made for both books and articles.

Interlibrary Loan is available for all UHCL students, faculty, and staff who have no current overdues or fines.  If you are affiliated with another UH campus, or another college or university, please use the ILL services at your home campus' library.

Titles that are prescribed as course textbooks at UHCL are not available for ILL.

ILL requests are made through ILLiad. Access ILLiad directly, or visit our ILLiad Guide to learn how to use the system.

Note: Interlibrary loan is not available for TexShare borrowers, community borrowers, lifetime alumni, or students in the ELS or Hawk Connection programs.
