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. (For more information about accessing paper books and ebooks, see the Books and eBooks tabs 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.
