How to Search in Academic Search Premier


To access Academic Search Premier, go to the library homepage and click on "Databases A to Z."



The databases are listed alphabetically. Click on "Academic Search Premier" shown in the image below.





If you are searching from off-campus, you will be asked to enter your username and password. This is the same username and password you use to access the computers on campus.

Enter your search terms in the search boxes. The search will automatically default to a keyword search. For this example, I will search for articles about women's suffrage.





Below the search boxes on the left side of the page you will see a section with options on limiting your search. Check the box for Scholarly (Peer Review) Journals to limit to scholarly journals. Checking the box for full text will limit to just articles available in the database.





 You could add also the title of a journal to your search as shown below.
