Get help using our Discovery Search. Discover all the features that can help you find exactly what you are looking for.

What is the Discovery Search

Discovery allows you to search for print and e-books, full-text articles, journal titles, DVDs, and most of our library databases--all in one place! 

It's a great place to start your research. 

When to Use the Discovery Search

Use it!

Try something else

  When you are beginning your research 

  When you need to browse and access all the library's resources quickly. 

  When your topic is multi-disciplinary

  When you are looking for just-published journal articles. 

  When you are looking for specific information on a drug or medication.
