This is a guide to finding information on mathematics and computer science. It covers the HUJI Math and Computer Science Library, and also provides information on how to begin searching elsewhere, should you need to.
|Step 1 : Search the HUfind catalog for "Articles & More"|
This discovery tool allows a combined search of the HUfind Library Catalog (books, theses...) and Articles & More (databases)
|Step 2 : Search for articles in the databases from the Databases page. Click on the FindIt @ HUJI (SFX) button/link when available.|
Why search a specific database?
- Searching a specific database allows functions and information not available through the combined search, especially databases which speciallize in a specific subject.
- Not all subject specific databases are included in the combined search
- Can't I find everything in Google?
- No. Not if you want the most recent and up-to-date results or rank search results by relevance. Google ranks by popularity and is not up-to-date.
Note the differences between the databases.

|Step 3 : Check the Library catalog if you have access to the bibliographic items you need|
|Step 4 : Searching for Periodicals in Other Libraries|
Not all of the periodicals indexed will have access or be held in the Math & Computer Science Library. If we don't have online access or a print version in our library and you wish to find out which library does have it, there are a number of locating tools you can check.
