JUMP START--Find Online Resources on My Topic

QuickSearch is a search engine that will allow you to search many of the library's databases simultaneously.  It retrieves articles that may come from a variety of disciplines or fields.  The articles often include links to full text (full text or FindIt icons) as well as citations to paper and electronic books available through OhioLINK. (For more information about accessing paper books and ebooks, see the Books & eBooks tab of this guide).

QuickSearch is similar to Google in that it often retrieves a large number of results, but it consists of vetted library resources as opposed to web sites.  Use the options to the left of your list of results to narrow the retrievals.

Note: If you find that QuickSearch is too broad or you need more discipline-specific search, choose a discipline specific database using our databases by subject list or our subject guides.


  • QuickSearch
    Search many library resources at once.
    Search QuickSearch:

  • Research Guides by Subject or Class
    The links on the subject and class guides will help lead you to relevant article and book finders for your subject area. They will also tell you who your subject librarian is, whom you can contact for more help.
