Data Mining: Requires personal account / self-registration
A discovery tool that can help you search many of the MSMU Libraries’ databases at once. With just a single keyword search, Quick Search can retrieve hundreds of thousands of books, articles, videos, dissertations, and more. It is a great way to start your research before you move on to more specific sources and databases.
NOTE: It searches most, but not all of the libraries’ subscription services as well as some open access content. Use your MSMU credentials to access Quick Search from off campus.
Quick Search is built on the product EBSCO Discovery Service.
