Quick Search - find books, journal articles and everything else

Quick Search will look for books, journal and magazine and newspaper articles and even materials from Special Collections. Searches will return many hits, sometimes too many.

First log into Quick Search using your ACE Account 

A few tips for using Quick Search

  • Use the "Refine your search" tabs on the left hand side of the page
  • These tabs will allow you to limit by books, journal articles or to exclude newspaper articles
  • You can also limit to scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles and full text online
  • Also, notice in the results list, each entry has three small icons at the top of each entry
  • The icon with envelope allows you to email the article
  • The icon with quote marks allows you to format the citation 
  • The icon of a pin is used to pin an article to your account and save it in Quick Search

All UNLV Libraries' Collections
