About this guide

Welcome to the FAU Libraries subject guide for General Resources. This LibGuide includes general information resources for a variety of subjects, including databases, journals, books and more. Please contact a Reference Librarian for additional assistance.

Use the tabs at the top to find resources and information to help you research your topic. 

You can also use the search feature with the pull-down menu near the top right side of the page to search our Guides, the FAU catalog or the Web.

OneSearch

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).
