Search Tips

1. Put quotes ("") around multiple words to search as a phrase rather than individual words. Good for finding exact quotations.

   Example: ["In one of its panels a very singular figure riveted my whole attention."]

2. Use a star (*) for wildcard searching, which finds multiple endings of a single word.

   Example: [paint*] finds paint, paints, painter, painting, etc.

3. Use minus sign (-) to eliminate word or term from search.

   Example: [jaguar speed -car] finds information on the animal

4. Add the term "site:" to limit searching to a single website or domain.

   Example 1 : [futurism site:metmuseum.org] searches only the Met's website

   Example 2: [futurism site:.edu] searches only university websites

TIPS:

Be sure to adjust the settings > library links. Select Citrus Community College District - Find at Citrus College.

This will ensure you get instant access to full text resources that Hayden Memorial Library subscribes subscribed databases or electronic journals.

When you are looking for an article,

  • search by author, title, or subject, same as you would in a library catalog, or
  • search by keyword like you would in Google, using all of the tips in the box next to this one.

After a search, you can filter your results by manipulating the options on the left side of the screen, for example date range and relevance. On the right side of the screen you will see what the availability is of each result in your list.

If the full-text of an article is available via open-access or through Citrus College, a link will be made available. If there is no link, then only the bibliography is available, and you will want to search the library catalog or Interlibrary Loan if you want to pursue the item.
