Find It @ USC Libraries Staff Training


Key Takeaways

  • Expect to get full text results, online or physically in the libraries.  After doing a search, you can toggle and include results beyond what we have.
  • Find It does NOT search the library's databases.  See the "What are you searching" section to learn what goes into Find It.
  • OR, AND, NOT need to be capitalized if you want to use them as operators.

There's a test view for Find It where we sometimes try out new features.
