What is Discovery?

Discovery is a search engine from EBSCOhost that searches our books, ebooks, journal articles, DVDs and more at the same time. Your search will yield results from our library catalog, most library journal databases (like JSTOR, Academic OneFile, EBSCOhost), and several open access databases like arXiv and OAIster. It's a first stop for your library research needs!

Question: Can I still use the library catalog and JSTOR?

Yes! Discovery does not replace any of our databases or the library catalog. If you prefer to search the library catalog or any of our databases, they are still available. Look for the additional search tabs on the library homepage for library catalog, journal look-up, databases, and research guides.
