Solving Off-Campus Access Problems
Occasionally there are temporary problems accessing databases off-campus. If it happens again, there are several options to solve this problem:
Locating Materials at UT and outside UT
What database should I use to find scholarly literature? (Knoxville and UTSI programs)
Databases Used by All Engineering Disciplines
Databases are generally located at UT Engineering and Technology Databases. Use databases to find peer-reviewed articles and other information.
BooksPlus, the Library Catalog
The BooksPlus box on the library home page searches the library's catalog to find out what books or journals are owned. Keep in mind that individual articles are not listed in the catalog.
Most databases require that you combine words in your search with AND or OR. AND retrieves records with all words. OR retrieves records with any of the words.
mercury pollution AND coal
mercury pollution OR mercury accumulation
nuclear AND computer* AND (reliability OR dependability)
The asterisk (*) truncates a word so that for this example, either computer or computers has to be in the records.
