Advanced Search

OneSearch provides a simple way to search for books, eBooks, videos, articles, and more, all in one place. In the search box above, you will see a drop-down list of options for filtering your search. To find articles, you have several options:

Tredway Library Resources (ALiCat+Articles): This option searches all of the library's physical and electronic resources (books, eBooks, videos, journal/magazine articles, and electronic references sources. This search also includes items in Special Collections and the Swenson Center.

Everything (ALiCat+Articles+I-Share): This option searches across everything, including articles from our databases. 

Articles only: This option searches for journal articles, magazine articles, newspapers articles, and electronic reference material across our databases.

WorldCat: This option searches across libraries worldwide. If you cannot find what you need at our library or another I-Share library, you can search in Worldcat and place a request using our Interlibrary Loan service (ILL).

Popular Vs. Scholarly (Peer-Review)

Below is a video explaining the difference (and importance of knowing the difference!) between popular and scholarly articles.  I've also included 5 pairs of popular and scholarly articles, where each pair discusses the exact same research study, but in very different ways.  Notice how short and general the popular articles are, while the scholarly articles are extremely detailed and contain a number of references.  *Note: I didn't make this video but am borrowing from a video used at Illinois College's Schewe Library (my previous library) that was itself stitched together from two other videos by different libraries... they already explained it better than I ever could!*
