Eagle Search: ebooks, articles and more


Eagle Search is a discovery tool that works like a new kind of database. A single search in Eagle Search can return records from all of these sources. It can be related to Google Scholar, though Eagle Search has many advantages over Google Scholar. It is a sort of a library search engine that includes records for:

  • E-Books
  • Full Text articles
  • Conference proceedings
  • Theses and dissertations
  • Videos
  • Images
  • and more.
  • Eagle Search includes many, many resources, but not everything Warner Library subscribes to
  • Comprehensive searches on a topic require using subject-specific databases.
  • Vague or short searches will return too many results; searches using well-refined search terms or phrases in quotes will return fewer, more refined results

Please take note of the box to your left---It will tell you what is not accessible via Eagle Search.
