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
Resources Used by All Engineering Disciplines
What database should I use to find scholarly literature? (Knoxville and UTSI programs)
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Civil and Environmental Engineering
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Industrial and Systems Engineering/Engineering Management
Materials Science Engineering
Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering
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.
