Choose your search terms based on your topic. You can start your searching using keywords and subjects (as you would when searching for a library book). You can search with general terms:
- fashion trends AND united states
- history AND hair
Alternatively, search with more specific terms. For example, a search for "salon management" will return fewer, more focuses articles than a search for "small business".

Print Journals and Newspapers
Printed newspapers, magazines, and journals are available at all three campus libraries. Choose your campus below to see a list of magazines.
Magazines and newspapers are for use inside the library only. A copier is available for black and white photocopies.
Using broad search terms (like "hairstyling") will return a large number of articles. To narrow your results, you can use the following search limiting tools available:
- Full-text: By default, your search should be limited to full-text articles only. Be sure to check that this option is selected.
- Date: Consider your topic. You may only need articles written during a certain timeframe. If you need articles written in the last five years, five days, or only in the 1980s - use the EBSCOhost time slider to limit your date range.
- Add keywords: If you are looking for hairstyles from the 1960s, add the word "1960s" to your keywords in the search bar.
