        How do I find newspaper articles about music in the Lehigh Valley?

        • Lehigh University Brown & White
          Full text of the Lehigh University newspaper from 1890s to 2000.
        • Morning Call
          Includes full text of all articles published 1982 to present. Especially strong in 20th century, but also includes articles on early Lehigh history.

        How do I locate peer-reviewed journal articles?

        Can I search all the library databases and catalog together, in one search?

        Most of the databases and the library catalog can be searched together in a new library search engine called Search Central found on the Trexler Library website. Most useful when working with narrow topics where you need everything that's available.  Several search features are missing from the original databases, like relevance, and language and peer review limiters.


          How do I cite sources in a bibliography?

          For tips on citing print and electronic sources, visit Trexler Library's Citation Guides for Print and Electronic Resources.

          For automated citation, try the shareware Zotero.


            Articles via interlibrary loan

            Journal articles not found in Trexler Library can be ordered on interlibrary loan.
