Database search

Discovery search

Discovery is a very broad search across multiple databases. Depending on the topic, you may find that Discovery brings back too many results, in which case it might be more helpful to use a single database. Popular databases are listed on the Library homepage, or go to the Databases page to see all available databases.

Find an Article

Have an article citation and need to check if FNU has access?

Option 1 :
Use our Discovery search at the top of the page. Just paste the citation into the search box.
(If pasting in the full citation doesn't work, try searching for just the article title.)

Option 2 :
Use EBSCOhost's Citation Matcher. Watch our video tutorial for more information.

Option 3 :
Using the library's e-journal search, type in the journal name. If FNU has access to the journal, you'll see a list of databases which provide access, including what years are available. Select a database, and navigate to the volume/issue to see the list of articles.

If the journal title does not appear in the result list, log in to ILLiad to submit an InterLibrary Loan request.

eBooks

FNU has ebooks as well as e-journals.

To search all available eBooks, use the Discovery search above and select "Search eBooks only."


Selected eTextbook titles are also available. Go to the eTextbooks guide for a list of courses which have eTextbooks available.
