Shark Search: Overview

What is Shark Search?

Use Shark Search for a general search to find books, e-books, journal articles, and other materials available through the NSU Libraries.

  • Search by keyword, author, or title 

  • Limit results by source type for specific materials

    • Although Shark Search can help you locate scholarly articles, it cannot limit to only peer-reviewed articles. To search for peer-reviewed articles, select a specific subject database related to your topic.

    • To check if a source is considered scholarly, search for the publication in the Ulrichsweb database.
