Major Tabs on the Library Website

Use the Quick Search to do something a bit like Googling the library's collections. You’ll find a bit of everything (book titles, film titles, journal and magazine articles, encyclopedia entries, etc.) Tip:  Use the filters to narrow your results to only articles or only books, etc. The filters work exactly like filters online when you are shopping, helpful but not perfect.

Use Books & Media when you are searching for a particular book, perhaps from a Wikipedia entry or from the References in an article or in another book.

Note: if you are looking for a book and don’t get a result at Pace, expand to Libraries Worldwide. Check that box! You can request the book through InterLibrary Loan aka ILL.

Use Journal Title when you have the citation to an article but still need to find the tull text. This tool tells you if any of the subscription databases have a particular journal full text. Be sure to check the years of coverage. You’ll be taken directly to an ILL link if the journal isn’t available via Pace.

Use the Databases to search for scholarly journal or magazine articles. Start by selecting a database from the A-Z title list or by Subject. Always choose the Advanced Search screen if it isn’t already open. If you need peer-reviewed articles, you can limit your search results to them. Note there are errors, however. For example, an opinion piece may be published in a peer-reviewed journal, but that piece is not peer-reviewed.

Use the Interlibrary Loan service to request an article or book that you can’t find at the Pace Library.
