What is Discover?

Don't know where to start? Discover is a single search box that accesses most of the library’s collections, holdings, and databases, increasing your chances of finding results by keyword or phrase. Whenever possible, links are provided directly to the online source identified.

This is a great tool for undergraduates not knowing where to start. It is also a good starting point for graduate students and faculty looking for materials outside their established research interests. Once you perform a search, notice how Discover offers a large number of options on the left side to refine your search.

Discover is a starting tool. Advanced researchers will still want to explore more deeply in specialized databases, particularly those that are not covered by Discover. Remember, you can still access individual databases through the A – Z List.
