Articles & Books searches many of the library's resources at once. This is a powerful, fast research tool!
Tip: When off-campus , log in with your NetID & password
Enter your keywords in the search box.
Search phrases using quotation marks
example: "to be or not to be"
Combine words with AND, OR, and NOT in capital letters
example: microcircuits OR nanocircuits
Substitute * for several possible letters
example: child* ...will find child, childhood, children, etc.
Complex searches may combine elements
example: homeless AND (healthcare OR "health care") AND (adolescents OR teen*)
Interlibrary Loan & Using Worldcat
If UR doesn't have the article or book you need, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that will deliver a copy to you. PDFs of articles usually arrive in two days or less! If you have the citation of the item you wish to request, go to the ILL page: https://illiad.lib.rochester.edu
& log in with your NetID to request an item.
From within any of the library any databases, click the button.It will find the full text of your article online if it's available through the libraries. Or, it will search the library catalog for you to see if we have your article in print--or let you request it via Interlibrary Loan.
Looking for books we don't have in the library? Try searching WORLDCAT (either for a title or by keywords on your topic). Click on the button to request a book through ILL.
