Using UC Library Search

An introduction to UC Library Search, the new systemwide catalog search and discovery tool.

How do I find stuff online?

In the previous section, we learned how to narrow search results to online items only. Now that we've learned how, let's look at one of the items in that list of results.

Take a look at the first record in our search results. The green "Available Online" note lets us know that the item is indeed available online. To learn more about this item, click the title: "USA vs. Mexico: history, geopolitics and economics of one of the world's oldest rivalries in soccer."

Here's the catalog record for this online journal article. The record shows that this item is available from two different databases: EBSCOhost Academic Search Complete and Taylor & Francis Current Content. You could click either of those links to be taken to the article.

Let's click the first link, Academic Search Complete. It takes us directly to that database, and the article in that database. All we have to do is click "HTML Full Text" or "PDF Full Text" at the left side (yellow rectangle) to get the full text of the article.
