The new way to find articles and everything else

     With the beginning of our new discovery system, you have a new way to find articles, books, maps, videos and anything else the Library owns or has access to. And you don't even have to leave this page! At the top of the page, you will see a search box. Type in your terms, hit Enter and see what you get. This discovery system searches for books, articles and everything else.

     Too many results? Use the left of the page to narrow your search. Narrow your search to "Peer-reviewed" items. Or maybe you only want to see books. You can limit your search to books. Want to limit your search to the most recent items? You can do that too. Do a search, experiment with the facets to limit the search and see how you like how it works.

And let us know what you think about it.
