Library U Search Help

Coverage Information

Library U Search retrieves citations from most, but not all of the Library resources; each citation includes a link to either the online version of the item or a link to a record that indicates where a paper (or microfilm) version is located within the UTRGV Library. Resources included in Library U Search:

  • All books, films, government documents, maps, sound recordings, and other material contained in the UTRGV Library Catalog, and
  • Articles from selected years of many, but not all, magazines, journals, and newspapers to which the UTRGV Library subscribes
  • Note: Using the "Add Results Beyond Your Library Collection" feature may add items not available from the UTRGV Library. UTRGV students, faculty, and staff may use the UTRGV Library Interlibrary Loan service to obtain these items.

Resources not Accessible via Library U Search:

  • Citations from research databases to which the UTRGV Library subscribes but are not participating in the Library U Search product
  • Articles from magazines, journals and newspapers to which the UTRGV Library subscribes but are not participating in the Library U Search product
