EagleSearch Help

This guide will help you with performing, refining, and saving searches using EagleSearch.

Refining your search in EagleSearch

The benefit of using EagleSearch is that it searches both our physical collection (print materials available in the library), as well as many of the library's research databases all at once from a single search box; however, with that comes the possibility of having too many search results.  Using the filters in the left-hand column of the results page, you can quickly refine and narrow your results down to a more manageable list.

See an important note about saving filters below.


Once you've selected your filters be sure to select Remember all filters located at the top under Active Filters in order to keep those filters saved for any additional searches.  Click Reset filters to clear them or to close out individual filters, click on the X at end of each one.


Quickly limit your results by selecting any of the options under "Availability."  NOTE: If using on a mobile device, click on the filter icon to select and apply limiting options.

Example of Availability filter in EagleSearch

  • Available in Hunt LIbrary – Items physically available in the Hunt Library
  • Available Online – Items electronically available that provide the entire document
  • Open Access – Items that are freely available to read and download
  • Peer-Reviewed (Scholarly) – Items that are both research-focused but are also categorized by a rigorous approval process of peers (experts in the field)
