There are several different ways to filter or refine your search results:
- By document or format type (e-books, journals, newspapers, magazines, streaming videos, etc.)
- By publication date
- By subject
- By author
- By language
Many databases (as well as OneSearch) will also allow you to select whether you'd like scholarly/peer-reviewed resources or not.
If searching in OneSearch....
...after entering your search term, you will want to look to the left for this box to refine your search results.
If searching in a database, you will be able to find similar options, although they may be in different places in different databases. Below are two examples from different databases, showing some of the areas to use to refine or filter your search results.
This is a different database, with the same options but in slightly different places.
If you're still having trouble, please contact a librarian!
