What is APPsearch?

APPsearch allows you to search for books, journal and magazine articles, movies and more -- all in one place!

  • Google-like relevance ranking ensures that the best results rise to the top of your search
  • Cool Web 2.0 features-like tag clouds- help you focus your search by format, collection, subject headings and lots of other ways

 What is included in APPsearch?  Not everything the library owns! 

APPsearch contains over 50 databases (journal and magazine articles) plus the library catalog (books, movies, and more), but the library has access to over 300 databases.  To do advanced research, you will still want to use discipline specific databases. Some of the most popular databases that are currently part of APPsearch include:
