This guide will help with creating your search, filtering your results, and saving your searches for later in EAGLEsearch.

Finding Articles in EAGLEsearch

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.

Each item on the results page will provide a title, author (if available), publication namedate, volume and issue (if available), partial abstract, content type and location.  To view additional information about the item, hover over thelink.

Content Type
Searching for articles in EAGLEsearch will limit your search results to the following types:

  • Newspaper Articles
  • Journal Articles
  • Reports
  • Newsletters
  • Conference Proceedings
  • Trade Publication Articles
  • Government Documents



Item Locations
Any items listed in the search results will provide one of the following item locations (to the right of the content type):

  • Full Text Online
  • Citation Online
  • Check Availability


Full Text Online will hopefully link to the complete text of that document type, if available, in one of our research databases or on the publisher's website. In some cases, it may link to a record of that item in our library catalog which should provide a full-text link to it. 

Citation Online only provides the citation for that item and not the full text; however, that does not mean we may not have access to the full text elsewhere. Please contact Ask a Librarian for assistance in trying to obtain it.

Check Availability. are for items from our print collection that have been given a call number (i.e. TL696.C6.I58 2012) location and that are located in the Hunt Library or in one of our storage locations (see possible shelving locations for articles below). Selecting the link will take you to the record of that item in the library catalog and provide more information about it. 

Possible shelf locations for print articles:

  • Documents
  • Main Shelves
  • Vertical Files

For help narrowing your search results (i.e. Locating peer-reviewed articles, selecting a particular discipline/subject area, or limiting a date range), please see the page Refine Your Search.
