Locating Materials in SearchIT

Using the SearchIT Catalog

In SearchIT, you can look for articles, physical books, and ebooks in the library collection. It is recommended to use SearchIT for books and ebooks, but not for articles. It isn’t updated as frequently as databases like PubMed and it doesn’t offer as many filters. So for articles, it’s better locate them within the literature databases. 

Basic Search

You can use the basic search function and type in the title or title keywords for the item that you are looking for.

Advanced Search

You can also use the advanced search function, which lets you enter multiple fields and limit by the material type, language, and publication date.

Locating an Item in SearchIT

Once you see the item that you are looking for in the results list, you can select the title to retrieve the full-text version of the item.

Accessing an Item in SearchIT

Select the link under "Access Options" to access the item. You may need to sign in with your WSU Network ID and password first.

Citation Tool

Under the "Send to" box, you can select "Cite This Item" to reveal a citation for the item in APA, Chicago, Harvard, or MLA format. Be sure to double-check the accuracy of the citation before using it.

Permalink Tool

Under the "Send to" box, you can select "Permalink" to reveal a consistent URL for the item. You can use this to retrieve the item at a later time or to share it with others.
