Library Search enables you to find library books and and videos, journals, databases, archival collections and other resources that you can access at Emory.
The Library Search User Guide will help you get the best results with your searches.
You can also use these quick tips to get started:
You can focus your search for items based on general keywords, the author/creator, the title, or standardized subject headings.
Keyword searches usually pull up thousands of results, and not all of them may be relevant for your research. This is because the search pulls up all the results for ANY of the words. In this case it is searching for African OR Americans OR television.
If you get too many results and have difficulty narrowing them down,
Try searching different ways to find what produces the best results for your needs.
2. Sort your results.
Sort by author, title, year or relevance to make it easier to find what you need on the list. Relevance ranking is the default results display option.
3. Limit your search with facets.
Use the facets on the left to filter down to the results that work best for you. You can apply multiple filter options to your search to display only items that fit within your preferred parameters.
4. Use the Advanced Search function.
The advanced search page allows for more controlled and precise searching. This is the best method to use if you already have a good idea what you are looking for.
Try using the Search Tips on the right side of the main Advanced Search page.
