findit@flinders is our library search tool that allows you to search across the Library's online and physical collections in one place. We would recommend it as an excellent starting point for most research projects.
Here are some simple ways to search for resources using findit@flinders

Use quotation marks " " to search as a phrase
Advanced search enables you to define your search scope with greater precision. In line one, the first dropdown box options include title, author/creator, or subject. The second dropdown includes contains, is (exact), or starts with. The search can also be limited by material type, language and publication date.
Search results are records for physical or online items that match your search terms. The basic view of a record will include information such as the title, author, publication date, edition, and where you can find it (in the library or online). It also indicates the resource type, e.g. book, article, journal.
Physical items will have a location number and the library branch where it is held. For eBooks, journals and articles, click the link. If a physical item is at another branch or on loan you can place a hold request.
The Library can have several versions of an item.
