Library Search lets you use a single search box to search across all of the Rowan University Libraries' physical materials, as well as most of our online materials. Not everything that we have available online will show up in Library Search, however.
If you specifically need online resources on a subject, especially journal articles, consider using one of these options instead of Library Search:
The drop-down menu to the right of the Library Search box lets you choose what to use Library Search to search for. Select from one of these options:
When you have selected what to search, type in your search terms and click the magnifying glass button. For a more powerful search, try one of these strategies:
|Use AND, OR, NOT (all caps) to combine search concepts||
|Use quotation marks to search for phrases||
|Use wildcard operators (? and *) to search for word variations||
|Use parentheses to create complex queries using multiple operators||
