Library Catalog: Use this option to search for physical items (books, print journals, DVDs, etc.), ebooks, and streaming media owned by the library.
Articles & More: Use this option to search across many databases of articles in journals, newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, and dictionaries.  Please note: This does not search all databases.
All OneSearch: Use this option to search both the Library Catalog and Articles & More.
Course Reserves: Use this option to search for books that have been set aside for your courses.

Remember: NEVER PAY

If you hit a Pay Wall, that is (a page that asks you to pay a fee to access a journal or article) NEVER PAY!  You will often have access through Brandeis or Inter-Library Loan.  Contact Aimee or Maric!
