Additional FlashFind Utilities

FlashFind has other built-in utilities, including

  • Citation Lookup: Use this tool to look up a known, specific article, book, or journal series using information from a citation.
  • Journal Lookup: Use this tool to look up a specific journal title and check the library's holdings for print or online access.
  • Browse Search: Use this tool to search for a book title, book author, or book subject, then virtually browse the surrounding library shelves to see what other titles are housed near it. It's like remote viewing the library's book collection!

Links to all these tools can be located in FlashFind's main menu, located at the top of any page within FlashFind.
