The Multi-Search tool is great for getting started with your research. Multi-search scours many, though not all, of our resources to bring you books, articles, and other sources. You can begin your Multi-Search search by typing your keywords in the search box below, but be sure to check out the subject specific databases (additional pages in the main menu) for more resources.
The Shapiro Library subscribes numerous databases filled with scholarly articles, book chapters, research reports, statistics, and more from thousands of respected publications. Explore librarian recommended resources by subject area below or in additional pages in the main menu. When you search these resources, be aware of the subject area as your crafting your searches- effective searches in the medical databases may be different than those in the business databases, for example.

Health Organization Financial Statements
If you know the journal title that the article is published in you can use the Periodical Finder to locate specific articles. This is a useful tool if you don’t know the database where the article is located and if the Multi-Search does not bring it up for you. For more information please see the FAQ: How do I find a specific article?
If you cannot locate an article or book, please fill out an interlibrary loan request. For more information please see the FAQ: How do I request a book, book chapter, or article that the library does not own (place an interlibrary loan request)?
It's true that you can find some high-quality, scholarly articles online.
