Tips for searching "All"
Return to our Search Tabs >>
- "All" is the new default search tool
- Find the former default search tool, Catalog, directly next to it
What am I searching in "All"?
- Combined results from the Catalog, Articles, e-Journals and Databases finders with the exception of Newspaper articles and Book reviews, which are excluded from results by default
- All the books, films, music, special collections, ebooks, database titles and more from our catalog
- A majority of Duke University's journal subscriptions
- Our research guides
- The DukeSpace repository
How do I include newspaper articles or book reviews in my results?
- Uncheck the Newspaper articles or Book reviews box from the All tab on the homepage, enter your search terms and click search
How do I narrow results or refine my search to items in the catalog only?
- Use the checkbox facets on the left side of the results screen to limit your search
- For example you may refine your seach to include only peer-review journals or items in the library catalog
- You may also narrow by content type (e.g. books, articles, research guides), subject term (be sure to click "more options" for additional subject terms), publication date, library location and language
- You may also search by field (e.g. title, author, ISBN) by entering the following in the search box: Title:("Enter title here"), Author:("Enter author's name here"), or ISBN:("9781936747009"). See the Summon Help Page for more info and examples.
How do I get to the full-text of an article?
- Click the title of the article you wish to read
- If you are not directed to the full-text of the article, click "Didn't get full text? Try this" in the blue banner at the top of the screen
- If the article is available in full-text, a PDF icon will appear in the list - click this icon
- If the library does not subscribe to the article in full-text, you may check for a copy in the catalog (click "By title") or request a copy from Document Delivery (click "University patrons" or "Medical Center patrons")
- If you continue to have trouble, Ask a Librarian
