Omni, the library's discovery search tool, searches through collections of books and e-books, scholarly journals, newspaper articles, theses and dissertations, conference proceedings, and numerous academic databases, simultaneously from a single search box.
When searching Omni for books or journal articles, use the facets located on the search results screen, to limit your search results.
It can be a good starting point to find material but if you are doing high level research, you will want to search relevant subject specific databases.
Look it Up
To find journal articles by title, you can use Omni. Type the title of the article in the search box and as much information to distinguish the article.

Google's scholarly search engine. Google Scholar searches for scholarly materials including journal articles, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from a variety of academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as scholarly articles available across the web. Because of the variety of sources that Google Scholar uses, not every result you’ll see is necessarily peer-reviewed. It is still important to evaluate the sources for credibility.
