General Search Tips

Be specific for best results, e.g. photography during the civil war, not just civil war. 

Refining your search

After entering a search, use the facets on the left to narrow the results

  • target only peer-reviewed articles 
  • show only items with Full Text available online 
  • include/exclude newspaper articles, books, journal articles, and more
  • limit your results by date, language, format or subject

Expanding your search

Mark the facet on the left labeled "Add results beyond your library's collection" to search more places and include items not found in FAU Libraries.  For items not available in the FAU Libraries collections, click on the title and scroll down to "Request document through ILLiad" to place an interlibrary loan request for the item (Pre-registration required to use this service).
