Changes to the Library Search Widget

We’ve also made some changes to the tabbed search widget available on our homepage:

  • Articles tab: search most (but not all) Library research databases all at once.
  • Books & Media: search the Library catalog for books, E-books, audio, video, and film (including streaming video).
  • Everything: search the majority of Library research databases and the entire Library catalog all at once.


Things That Won’t Change

You will still be able to access specific Library research databases from the Library Research Databases page and search for books, E-Books, journals, textbooks, video, and more in the Library Catalog. Links to Databases and our Catalog are, and will remain, available on every page of the Library website:
