What is Search?

Search is a discovery tool that searches across catalogs, databases, and online indexes to deliver the most relevant results from the Library’s diverse holdings.   


How should I use Search?

Search is great for getting access to items the Library owns and for casting a wide net in your research. Because Search includes more resources, you can expect more results. Facets and filters are provided for quickly refining your search to those results most relevant to you. For example, you can limit your search to specific resource type (e.g., books, peer-reviewed articles), subject or date range.
