Database searching

The search box at the home page of the Main Library website is a starting point for searching our electronic databases.


Here is what the different options do:

  • e-Resources (EDS) -  does a search on the Discovery Service, a unified index of subscriptions to EBSCO databases

  • e-Resources (Summon) - does a search of our serials databases, including newspapers and journal articles

  • Library Catalog - does an Any Field search on the iLib Web OPAC

  • Site Search - does a search on the content of the Main Library website


If your initial search with the search box at the homepage does not yield any results, you can search further using our electronic databases. In addition we have databases on trial which can be accessed for a limited time only.


Guides on how to search our databases are posted at the How To section.
