Eagle Search is a discovery tool that is almost like Googling!  A single search in Eagle Search can return records from most of our subscription databases, as well as our book and media catalog. It can be related to Google Scholar, though Eagle Search has many advantages over Google Scholar. It is a library search engine that includes full-text materials for:

  • E-Books
  • Print Books
  • Scholarly Articles
  • Videos
  • Images
  • and more!

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.

Some Options in EDS
