Finding Resources with Find It!

A good way to start your research is to look for resources using Find It! The Find It! search box searches through all of the libraries' resources simultaneously. Clicking on the Advanced Search option under the search box will allow you to refine your search by such things as publication year and material type. 

If you don't have a particular resource in mind, searching by subject is a good way to start. This will help narrow your results. If you add an asterisk* after a search term the search will widen to include all variations of that word. So, if you search "Jew*," your results will include Jews, Jewish, Jewess, Jewry, etc. 

See the Find It! FAQ page to learn more.
