Finding Sources

Toggle each box below to learn more about types of sources and tips for looking for specific items.

  • All Library Search
  • use Boolean search strategies
  • Advanced Search options in different databases

Say you know¬†exactly what you’re looking for — a specific book or the full text of a cited journal article, for example. This should be pretty easy to track down. The easiest place to start is to enter (or copy/paste) the title of the source into the All Library Search box.

Because All Library Search defaults to items freely accessible at the Sul Ross Library (“SRSU Library has it!”), if nothing is returned, you may need to uncheck this limiter in order to expand the search results and attempt to track down the source using Interlibrary Loan or Document Delivery.
