EAGLEsearch Help

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.

Search results

Each item on the results page will provide a title, author (if available), publication namedate, 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 themore informationlink.

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
  • available, Hunt Library
  • not available, Hunt Library

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 an item details page for that item, 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.

available, Hunt Library or not available, Hunt Library 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.
