Searching the Open Web (not databases/library)

The open web provides a plethora of resources for finding data.  Try using Google Advanced searching or Google Dataset Search.  

Tips for Advanced Google searching include:

  • Include search terms like data or table 
  • Google ignores the word AND as a search operator. But, typing OR in all caps will find similar or related terms (e.g. women OR females OR girls).
  • Search for a particular document type (e.g. childhood obesity filetype:xls)
  • Search for data on a particular site or domain (e.g. childhood obesity site:.gov)
  • Exclude words by using the "-" sign in front of the word you wish to exclude

Get an Interlibrary Loan

An Interlibrary loan can be requested  by clicking on the link on the Library home page under the "How Do I" section or linking directly to illiad.lib.rochester.edu

Here’s how it works.

When you can’t obtain a journal article (or a book, book chapter, audio, DVD or almost any academic material), our librarians are part of a global network of libraries that share materials. So by requesting an interlibrary loan, you can obtain that needed document, often in a matter of a few days, depending on what other institution owns the item, who is willing to lend it, and where the item is coming from.


To engage your Interlibrary loan, you need to login to the service with your NetID. You can do this by clicking on the link on the Library home page or linking directly to illiad.lib.rochester.edu. Then, after you are registered and logged in, you will see a menu.  Go to “New Request” and enter the required data on the item; when finished click “submit”.

You will get an email notice when the item has been received. If the item is in digital form, it will be placed in your Interlibrary Loan account, and you can just log in to download it. If it is a physical item, you can just pick it up at your specified pick up location.
