OneSearch Mānoa: Finding Articles

This guide explains how to use OneSearch Mānoa and describes its content.

Finding Journal Articles

1) To find a specific article, type in part or all of your desired title in the search box and select Articles + in the drop-down menu. 

Articles + will search a massive journal index called Primo Central Index (a subscription database of millions of scholarly journal articles, magazine and newspaper articles, e-books, and legal documents), plus the Hawaii Pacific Journal Index, ScholarSpace, and eVols.

When finished, click on the SEARCH button or ENTER key. For this example, let us search for an article entitled "Shea Butter: Connecting Rural Burkinabe Women to International Markets Through Fair Trade."

Note: You can also search by the article's author (Last name, First name).

When it is not available, the entry will be tagged as Image of no full-text online link.
