Multi Search is a tool that searches the library catalog (books and media collection), as well as a number of article databases simultaneously. Instead of doing dozens of searches in different places, you only need to search once!

 Using Multi Search, you can find:


 * Call numbers (locations) for Print Books and DVDs

 * Full-Text E-Books

 * Full-Text Reference articles

 * Full Text news and magazine articles

 * Trade publications and special reports

 * Images of works of art and historical photographs

 * Links to Streaming Videos


Multi Search allows you to export MLA- or APA-formatted citations to your e-mail or to a citation software of your choice. In addition, you may set up folders of your search results for future retrieval. Multi Search works on web browsers and mobile devices and can be accessed from off campus by current students.

Multi Search does not include all resources of the library. Exclusions include Hoovers Premium, Key Business Ratios, First Search, RAB Instant Backgrounds, Lexis-Nexis, <I> The Chronicle of Higher Education,</i>  Country Watch, and HarpWeek. Click here to search individual database collections.
