Searching Omni

Omni lets you do 'one search' to find books, journals articles, newspapers articles, videos, etc. It searches almost all of our collections and databases, simultaneously.

If you know the title of a specific book, book chapter, journal article or journal, type in the full title.

If you are keyword searching:

  • Combine keywords with AND
  • Combine synonyms with OR
  • Exclude term with NOT
  • Use truncation * (asterisk) as the end of a root word to find all forms of the word
  • Use ? (question mark) to replace a single character

When you get your results, use the filters on the left side of the screen to limit your search to books, journal or newspaper articles.

Note: If you are searching Omni from off campus, it is very important that you login if you want to be able access online journal articles and ebooks.
