  • narrow by content type to find only articles, books or WPI project reports
  • filter by library location to find items in the Film Collection or Archives
  • screen for only full text or peer reviewed articles
  • exclude newspaper articles - for some topics, you will find it handy to remove all the news articles that may come up in your results.

When you select "Add results beyond your library's collection" you will find articles and other resources that WPI may not own. Use the FullTextFinder to see options for obtaining the item(s) within Google Scholar or through Interlibrary Loan.
