Basic Search

 

You can do basic keyword searches from the library home page.  Just type your search terms in the search box and press 'Go'.

 

 

Or go directly to Usearch by clicking "Go."

*Tip* LOGGING IN right away will allow for a seamless experience requesting materials and viewing your e-shelf and library account information. Click the LOG IN link in the user panel and enter your uNID and password. When your name appears in the user panel, you know you're logged in.

 

Your initial search results will include books, A/V materials, articles, digital collections and more from the J. Willard Marriott, Eccles Health Sciences, S.J. Quinney Law and McKay Music libraries.

 

*Tip* You can sort your search results by relevance, date-newest, author and title by choosing your preference in the sorted by: drop-down menu located at the top of your search results list.



To refine your search results, use the facets on the left side of the screen. You will be able to facet your results by:  Resource Type, Location, Collection, Subject, Creation Date, Language, Author/Creator, and Classification


You can select or exclude many facets at one time by clicking "More options."

*Tip* If you have searched for "fashion" and only want to see physical materials available at the Marriott Library, you would choose: Show Only = "Available in the Library," Location = "Marriott Library." This will tailor your search results to only list physical materials at the Marriott Library.

 

 

For physcial materials such as books, A/V materials and more, use the Locations & Request tab to view more information and place requests.

*Tip* You must be logged in to place requests.

*Tip* To initiate a request for physical items, click the red request link, review your request and click the orange request button to finalize your request.

 

For full-text articles, e-books, digital collections and other items accessable online through Usearch, use the View Resource tab to preview the material. Use the "Open resource in a new window" or title link to view the full item in a new window.

*Tip* In addition to saving items to your e-shelf you can also send items to a printer, email address, EndNote Web, Connotea and del.icio.us
