This guide is intended to help prepare Stetson students to research topics in economics.

Finding Books

Start at the library's homepage to search for print books, eBooks, articles, and videos.

To limit your search for books and eBooks, visit this link or go to the library's homepage and click the Books icon. Use the Keyword drop-down menu to search by author, title, or subject. You can also change the Libraries Worldwide drop-down to Stetson in order to limit the results to items only available in the library's collection. The Advanced Search includes additional search options that limit results by date and/or format.

Advanced Search

Here's an image of the Advanced Search screen, and some tips for using it.

  • The Search Index allows you to tell OneSearch whether you want to find items that list your Search Term as a keyword, subject, author, title, or something else.
  • If you'd like to search for multiple Search Terms at once, enter each one into a different Search Term box. If you need more boxes, click on Add row.
  • Use the Operator drop-down box to define the relationship between each of your Search Terms. The 3 operators are: AND, OR, NOT. Use AND to tell OneSearch that you'd like to find items that contain both of your Search Terms. Use OR to tell it that you'd like to find all items that contain either of your Search Terms. Use NOT if you don't want to see items that contain a specific Search Term.
  • Below Search Tools you have the option of filtering results by peer-reviewed articles, format, year, and more.
  • Use the Databases menu on the right-hand side of the page to choose the databases you'd like to include in your search. A default search in OneSearch searches WorldCat, Academic Search Complete, and ProQuest Research Library. Scroll down to All Databases to choose from 24 databases to include in your search results.
