Quickly conduct either natural language or complex Boolean searches across the entire content collection you have selected.
The default search in Omni is a basic search. Enter one or more keywords into the Omni search box, choose the scope you wish to search (the scope is set to Queen's-only as a default), then click the search button.
Once you have your initial search results, you can fine-tune them by using the filters on the left side of the screen.
Use the advanced search option to obtain more precise search results.
From the Omni search page, select the "Journal Search" option near the top of the page and enter the title of the journal (or magazine or newspaper) in the search box. (To enlarge the screenshot, right-click on the image below and open in a new tab.)
Select the title of the journal from the list of results. From there you can access the full text (if the journal is online) or search inside for articles only from within the particular journal, directly from the record:
Omni offers a number of tools that help you organize, save, or cite your research. Examples include:
|Citation icon||Select one of ten different citation styles and generate a citation to the item|
|Envelope icon||Email a record to the item|
|Pushpin icon||Save this item to your list of favourites in Omni|
|Citation trails||Lead to sources that cite the work or to references cited in the item|
|Ellipsis icon||Shows action options including citation, email, permalink, export to citation managers and print record|
Omni includes content from the various research databases to which Queen's University Library subscribes but not everything is included. If you are looking for information on a very specific topic, or a topic that is subject specific, it is recommended that you search databases that specialize in that subject area for more thorough results.
A link to database search is available from the library homepage or consult the relevant library research guide to determine the recommended databases in your discipline.
