A Spanish & Portuguese/Luso-Hispanic Studies Guide

This guide is designed to assist students with their research in Spanish & Portuguese Literature, Languages and Linguistics

DiscoverE

DiscoverE is  Emory's main search tool to find books, journals, videos, government documents, microfilm collections and other materials.

Using discoverE to find books

From the Catalog tab in discoverE  do a simple search:

  • Type in your keywords
  • When you get some results, use "Refine My Results" on the left to narrow your search by author, item type, date and more

* Too many search results?

  • Add additional terms to your search
  • Limit your search by item type, exact phrase, and/or author/title/subject using discoverE's drop-down menus
  • Use discoverE's "Refine My Results" feature (in the left column)

* Too few results?

  • Remove some terms from your search
  • Add synonyms using OR [in upper case] with parentheses - for example (women OR woman OR female)
  • Remember to use links in useful titles to locate other materials by the same author or on the same subject. Click on "Details" for individual titles to find subject headings.

You can also do an Advanced Search in discoverE which will allow you to search by title, author, etc as well as limit by format or language.

Inter-Library Loan

Using Interlibrary Loan (ILL), you can:

  • borrow books and more from other libraries
  • get copies of articles that Emory doesn't own.

You will be notified when your materials arrive (most materials are obtained within 2 weeks).
