Full Text Finder - browsing library publications

Publication Finder allows you to search or browse all publications made available to you by your institution, regardless of the vendor or provider.

Publication Finder features a responsive Autocomplete feature that displays titles containing your search terms as you type them. When the specific title you are searching for appears in the list, simply click the title to view the available options for that title in a result list.


To search Publication Finder:

  1. Enter search criteria in the Search field. (e.g. title, subject, or ISSN/ISBN). To search for a specific publisher use field code PB (e.g. PB Elsevier).


    Click on a Discipline (if made available by your administrator) to browse a result list of titles related to that subject.

    Note: Each discipline includes a number that indicates the number of related publications in your institution's holdings.
