To search items the Dartmouth Library owns or has access to, use the search at dartgo.org/search.
The dropdown menu to the right of the main search bar allows you to narrow your search. If you select 'Available Online,' you will eliminate all physical items from your search.
To limit to physical items please use the 'Held in Library' facet in the left menu of the results screen.
If you select 'Library Catalog' from the dropdown menu, you will be searching all items in the Dartmouth Library, including journal and database titles. While we may have online access to many of the books, journals, and databases that appear in this search, selecting this option will not search the text within journals or databases, so it is not particularly useful for finding journal articles, abstracts, or book chapters. You will want to use the default 'search' from the dropdown menu to access articles and book chapters.
You may limit your search to items placed on reserve by a faculty member by selecting 'Course Reserves' from the dropdown menu. To find items specific to a course, search for the course title.
For browsers that support it, the search tool includes a Voice Search Assistant. To use it, simply click on the microphone icon, near the search button (magnifying glass icon).
This tool uses the Google Web Speech API. Clicking it will trigger a pop-up message asking if you will allow it to access your device's microphone. If you choose to allow it, the browser then records audio, listening for a long enough break in the audio and then converting the voice command you have given to a textual search and submitting it. The library and the search tool vendor do not have access to these recordings, but they have to be transmitted to Google in order for the tool to work. To opt out of the tool after allowing it, simply close your browser - the next time you return to the page, you will be asked again if you want to allow the service to work.
