FWS 121 Hypothetical Realities(R Rich)


Articles & Books searches many of the library's resources at once. This is a powerful, fast research tool!

You always come back after this visit and can search from off-campus, although you won't get full-text.  But, you can click "Preview" to see abstracts of articles! Make your list of sources you'd like to download before you get to campus! 

Enter your keywords in the search box.

Search Faster

  • Search phrases using quotation marks
    • example:  "to be or not to be"
  • Combine words with AND, OR, and NOT in capital letters
    • example:  microcircuit OR nanocircuit
  • Substitute * for several possible letters
    • example:  child*     ...will find child, childhood, children, etc.
    • note: The use of * within a phrase search will not work  
  • Complex searches may combine elements--in which case, use parentheses around OR terms
    • example:  homeless AND (healthcare OR "health care") AND (adolescents OR teen*)

Refining Search Results

Saving Search Results

To save your search results, you can click on the quotation mark to capture the citation, the chain icon to get the link, or click the envelope to mail yourself the citation. The folder icon is for a temporary place to hold your files, but it clears out when you are out of wi-fi or when you close your browser, so it's not recommended for saving items over a few hours.










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: 
& 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.
