Locating Materials in Search It

Using the Search It Catalog

In Search It, you can look for articles, physical books, and ebooks in the library collection. It is recommended to use Search It 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.
