Are you looking for a specific article or book for your class and don't know how to get started? Follow these tips to find anything in the library!
Try the Publications search if you can't find what you're looking for in the library search. The Publications search can be accessed from the home page or on the menu under Find. Please note that finding your specific article, journal, or book differs slightly between databases.
DOI: Digital object identifier - A unique alphanumeric string assigned to scholarly journal articles and some scholarly books. DOIs were created to ensure that even if the internet location of an item changes over time, it can still be easily found.
ISBN: International Standard Book Number - A unique identifier associated with a book. Note that each edition of a book is assigned a unique ISBN and that each format a book is published in (hardcover, paperback, ebook) will have a unique ISBN. For this reason, you may consider trying a title or keyword search if your ISBN search yields no results.
ISSN: International Standard Serial Number - A unique identifier associated with a journal name. ISSNs are especially useful when two or more journals have very similar names. Library databases typically include a journal's ISSN somewhere in the article record.
