The benefit of searching for articles in EAGLEsearch is that it allows users to search across many of the library's research databases at the same time from a single search box and provides convenient full-text access to them, if available.
Please note that not all databases are included and indexed in EAGLEsearch. For a list of those databases not included see the page Databases Excluded in EAGLEsearch.
Place quotation marks around two or more words that should be searched as an exact phrase. For example, "human factors".
EAGLEsearch allows for Boolean search operators such as AND and OR; however, the operators must be written in ALL CAPS.
Put "AND" between your search terms to ensure that each term is present somewhere in your search results. For example, pilot AND fatigue.
Put "OR" between your search terms to ensure that your search results contain either search term. For example, aircraft OR airplane.
Parentheses "()" can be used to order and combine search concepts. For example, "human factors" AND (aircraft OR airplane).
Place a * (asterisk) at the end of a root word to search for variant word endings. For example, comput* will find compute, computer, computers, computes, computing, etc.
Each item on the results page will provide a title, author (if available), publication name, date, volume and issue (if available), partial abstract (if available), content type and location. To view additional information about the item, click on or hover over thelink.

or are for items from our print collection that have been given a call number (i.e. TL696.C6.I58 2012) location and that are physically located in the Hunt Library. Selecting either link will lead you to the item details page for that item providing more information about it.
