Omni is our academic search tool. Search Omni for access to scholarly books, articles, and other material.

A&I Databases

Keep in mind that advanced searching in Omni will never be as precise and targeted as searching a subject-specific index. All our A&I databases remain available in Databases A-Z and through Library Research Guides, which you can find on the library website.  These databases describe academic research material in detail, provide search options that are relevant to the type of material you're searching, and offer links to the full text when it's available (as well as interlibrary loan forms when it's not available).

Advanced Omni Search

Click the "Advanced Search" button in Omni, to open a search with multiple boxes. Use your keyword searching techniques to put together more complicated searches.

Of particular note to Omni:

  • boolean operators must be in CAPS, to avoid being included as a search term
  • many parts of the advanced search box can be changed using drop-down menus, so you can be very precise
