Quick Search – WebFeat


On Friday, the Quick Search link under Find Information was discontinued.  The was the link to WebFeat our federated search engine.

We now have Search By Topic which is similar to the subject topics on WebFeat and Databases A-Z.  The difference  of course you have to search individual databases.

To help in your research we have added an Explore section in the library catalog.  This provides an excellent starting point for finding information on a topic for reports or debates.

You will find Explore at the bottom of the your search results page as well as individual pages for a specific book.

By clicking on one of the links, it will execute the same search in a group of resources by one vendor such as EBSCO or Gale.  This will give you a variety of references to use such as magazine and newspapers articles as well as articles in reference books.
