Step 1 :    Search the HUfind catalog for "Articles & More"

This discovery tool allows a combined search of the HUfind Library Catalog (books, theses...) and Articles & More (databases)
Step 2 :    Search for articles in the databases from the Databases page.    Click on the FindIt @ HUJI (SFX) button/link HUJI SFX when available.
Why search a specific database?

Can't I find everything in Google?
No. Not if you want the most recent and up-to-date results or rank search results by relevance. Google ranks by popularity and is not up-to-date.

Note the differences between the databases.

Step 3 :    Check the HUfind Library catalog if you have access to the bibliographic items you need

Step 4 :    Searching for Periodicals in Other Libraries

Not all of the periodicals indexed will have access or be held in the Math & Computer Science Library. If we don't have online access or a print version in our library and you wish to find out which library does have it, there are a number of locating tools you can check.

Step 5 (if steps 1-4 failed) :    Document Delivery Services    (Interlibrary loan)
