Natural language searches often work well. Example:
how body image affects women
You also can use simple keywords and quotation marks for a short, commonly used "exact phrase." Example:
"body image" women
Once you have a set of results, select and apply relevant filters (limiters such as peer-reviewed journals, available online, etc.) on the left of the screen.
For more complex searches like body image AND (women OR girls), use Advanced Search.
Use OneSearch Advanced Search to look for scanned materials that your professor may have placed on course reserve through the library.
As shown below, select the radio button for Course Reserves. In addition to searching by keyword or title of the item you're looking for, you may search specifically by Course ID (example: PSYC 4370) or by Course Instructor name.
While most materials will be available or delivered to you online, there will be times when you want a physical item like a book or DVD.
To request books and articles not available in the library, submit an ILLiad Interlibrary Loan request
