Searching the Library Catalog

Searching For Databases

If you want to find a particular database in the catalog, you will go to the Database Search link.

Once you choose a database, the site will redirect you to the search page for that specific database. You will then be able to enter your search terms and retrieve materials. 

Searching In Databases

Most databases have either advanced or modify search options. In general, you will be able to specify the following types of information:

  1. Search functions for adding or excluding terms 
  2. Language
  3. Review Status
  4. Document type
  5. Publication type
  6. Date of publication or most recent update
  7. Licensing or usage rights

In the EBCSO databases, these functions can be found here:



Use as many or as few of these options as you need to customize the results that you are receiving.

Limiting a Library Search by Database

You can also sort your results so that you are seeing resources from specific databases. Once you have entered your search terms, you can limit the results by choosing the database you are interested in on the right hand side, under "Collection."
