    • Full Text
      Select Full text included to limit to articles with full text online.
    • Source Type
      You can easily narrow down to academic or scholarly resources if your instructor requires it by selecting Scholarly Journals
    • Document Type
      This is an easy way to limit your search to things like audio/video, biographies, case studies, commentary, editorials, government documents, interviews, speeches, statistics, transcripts, and more.
    • Subject
      Save a lot of time by selecting a subject. This will eliminate articles that just mention your topic, but are not mainly about your topic.
