How to find articles using Omni

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 lockdown.

To find articles on a topic

You can use Omni from the search box on the library home page or from the Omni home page.

  • Enter one or more keywords or phrases that describe what you are looking for, and click Search or .
  • Under Resource Type, choose Articles

You can then use the filters on the left to further narrow down your search to the kinds of articles you are interested in:

  • Availability (online, print, open access, peer-reviewed)
  • Publication Date
  • Subject (or topic)
  • Author/Creator
  • Language
  • Location (in the MacOdrum Library; only applies to print items)
  • Journal Title (to see articles published in a specific journal)

For example, you can use Omni to find peer-reviewed articles on privacy and ethics in social media that were published in the last two years.

To find a specific article

If you are looking for a specific article, try searching for it by title.
