You will see the Power Search link below the main search box

The iLink Power Search

Here we have put in two search terms. Notice also the helpful links: Reserve Desk, I Need Material (Placing a Hold), and My Account (see what you have checked out, and renew books online.


By clicking on Details, we can see the item record for each book. Notice that the first two are in Career Reference, located behind Reference on the second floor.

Just Remember….

And remember….
  • If we do not have an article as full-text, we may have it in print, and you can photocopy it. Ask a librarian how to determine this.
If you don’t happen to be in the library by the way, all you have to do is call the Reference Desk, at 448-4625. The librarian on duty can talk you through the process of determining if we have something in print.
