Find Books, Journals, Articles, and More...

You are searching the library catalog. The library catalog searches for books, journals and media. It does not search inside books or journals. To search inside medical e-books, we recommend using a medical book collection such as Access Medicine, MD Consult, Stat!Ref or Books@Ovid. To search for journal articles, use PubMed, Primo Central, or other subject-specific databases.

  • Use the filters to the right of your search results to narrow your results.
  • Use the pull-down menus to search by keyword or as a phrase within the author, title, subject or other fields of the catalog records.
  • Use quotation marks (or the pull-down menu) to search for a specific phrase e.g. "quality of life".
  • Use uppercase OR to expand your search e.g. surgery OR surgical.
  • Use uppercase AND to narrow your search e.g. surgery AND anesthesia.
  • Use an asterisk "*" as a multicharacter wildcard e.g. an*sthes* will retrieve anesthesia or anesthesiology or anaesthesia or anaesthesiology.

You are searching Primo Central. Primo Central searches millions of journal articles and selected e-books. To search inside medical e-books, we recommend using a medical book collection such as Access Medicine, MD Consult, Stat!Ref or Books@Ovid.
