If you use the Discovery Search box on the Library's home page, you'll be searching a number of different databases simultaneously.  Most of these are article databases, but Discovery also searches WorldCat, which contains records for every item we own - essentially, it is our book catalog.  

To search multiple databases simultaneously for ONLY ARTICLES, you can use the search box found at the top of the A-Z Databases page (Click on the Articles & Databases link from the home page). 

Another good way to search more than one database at a time, while still being able to access powerful tools to help you filter and sort, is to search multiple EBSCOhost databases.  There are two ways to do this:

  1. From the Library Home Page, click on Articles & Databases, then click on E.  Select Ebscohost Databases. Place a checkmark next to the databases you want to search, then click Continue.
                            OR
  2. From within any EBSCO database, click on Choose Databases (above the top search box).  Place a checkmark next to the databases you want to search and click OK.
