What is Easy Search?

Easy Search is a search and discovery tool that allows you to simultaneously search more than one database. The basic Easy Search (Multi-subject Resources) includes general databases and resources that serve as a starting point to help you discover where you can find information about your topic. It is by no means intended to be comprehensive since information about your topic is likely to be found in multiple databases.

Easy Search groups databases together by subjects and disciplines. Instead of searching just the Multi-Subject Resources category, you may choose to search subject-specific collections of databases. These collections can be selected from the Search Options. Some topics may require performing your search in more than one category.

Searching Easy Search is as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Choose a category in Choose Search Options.
  2. Enter Search Terms in the box provided.
  3. Click Perform Search.

To view the databases you are searching, click the What am I searching? button.
