The default search tab on StarPlus is to search Everything.  This searches content held both within the University Library and Primo Central.  Therefore your results may not necessarily be available in the Library. The Everything tab is a great starting point for performing a general search for materials on a topic but if you want to find a specific source within the Library consider the following options:

  • For focused searching of resources available within the University Library use the University Collections tab. 
  • To perform literature searches for full text online articles and journal papers use the Articles and More tab.  

Remember! If you find something on the Everything tab and we do not hold it within the Library you can request an InterLibrary loan. and we will source the item from another institution.  Please check out InterLibrary loan FAQ's for more information.
