If you use the search box on the Libraries' home page, it'll take you to our search engine which offers a "content type" filter which you can use to refine your search. So first perform your search, using a general topic or the title of the specific work you're looking for, then use the Content Type filter to limit to the kind of media you want.content type filter with "journal article" selected In this example, you can see that "Journal Article" has been selected but there are options for newspapers, books, etc. If you select More... there will be further options, like image, art work, or video.
