The Discovery Tool is like an all-in-one database. It searches the NEOLINK and OhioLINK catalogs, resesarch databases, ejournals, and multimedia resources.
Why should I use the Discovery Tool?
When you're starting the initial steps of the research process and are exploring resources.
When you don't need a subject-specific database (like a nursing database).
If you have a citation, DOI, or title of a specific work you want to find, use the Discovery Tool for quick retrieval.
How do I use the Discovery Tool?
The Discovery tool is located onthe library’s homepage and in the A-Z database list. It works the same way as any EBSCOhost-provided database.
You can enter search terms directly into the search bar, or you can click on "Advanced Search" to see all search functions.
Note: You may be asked to authenticate (or log in) to this resource.
After you run a search:
You can scroll through the list of search results located in the middle of the page.
You have the option to limit your search using the limiters on the left-hand side of the page. Limiters include things like the publication date, the language, the type of source, the publisher, and more.
