Finding journal articles and books

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 service disruption.

To find peer-reviewed journal articles and books for your assignment, you have 2 options:

Option 1

Use Omni, the library's main search box to find academic journals articles and many other sources because it searches most of the library's databases, simultaneously. When you get your search results, use the filters on the left side of the screen to refine your search to scholarly/academic and journal articles.

Note: If you are searching from off campus, you must login if you want to be able access online journal articles and ebooks.

Option 2

Search subject-specific databases for Geography or Urban Studies:

Remember: If the library does not own the journal article that you need, you can request it for free via your RACER account
