About Discovery Search

Print Page

What am I searching when I use Discovery Search?

  • All of WorldCat in a new interface called WorldCat Discovery
  • A growing collection of e-books and articles from a variety of databases
  • All the materials at the Archabbey Library

Can I still search the databases directly?

  • Yes! We have not changed any databased. These can be accessed from the Databases tab on the main library page.

How do I see results from just the Archabbey Library?

  • Use the filter on the left side of the results screen to limit your results to just the Archabbey Library

How do I get to the full-text or abstract of an article?

  • Narrow results by checking the box for Article/Chapter in the Format filter at the left
  • Click the Access online button to view the full-text
  • Click the title and then the Description tab for more information such as an article abstract or additional full-text options
  • If the library does not subscribe to the article in full-text, you may click the Request Item on the Availability tab to request a copy from Interlibrary Loan.

How do I find journals?

  • Click "Journals" on the home page to browse an A-Z list or search by title or article citation, or just type the name of the journal in the search box.
