General Instructions

It is very easy with the mobile-friendly web pages from the university and the Library. On your smartphone:

Using CloudSearch Mobile

  • The first set of results will be for physical books, not articles. For books, search these results.
  • To find articles, tap the HCUBooks/E-books button and tap CloudSearch. This list is articles.

  • Use the "Filter Results" button to narrow searches by date, language, format, peer-reviewed, and MESH headings. 
    • Be aware that the "Field of Study" button is experimental and is not functioning for us as expected.
  • Tap the vertical ellipsis (three dots). The top button will show "View Resource" or "Find Resource." View means that our library has access. Find means that we do not and you will have to request it by Interlibrary Loan. You may or may not have to scroll the top portion of the window to see the requestion button.

  • You can also email a link to the article citation (from CloudSearch) to yourself or someone else.
  • Be aware the "Text It to Me" is also experimental and only sends you a partial citation with no URL link.
  • Clicking the Find button takes you to these options. Depending on your phone, you may need to scroll through the top to get to the buttons.
