Simplify Your Search with the EBSCO Discovery Box!

See that search box at the top of the library portal page? The EBSCO Discovery Search is a great starting point for your research.

What's great about EBSCO Discovery?

  • It searches nearly all library materials -- books, databases, and more -- and brings back only items immediately available to you in the library. (You can modify the search to expand your research beyond Shea Library resources.)
  • Many articles have a "Research Starter" article, which is designed to give you an overview of your topic and spark further questions for your research.
  • You can narrow down your results on the left side of the page, by limiting to the type of publication, date published, and other options.
  • It's an easy way to start your research when you don't know where to start!

Give EBSCO Discovery Search a try by searching for a broad topic (e.g., immigration or opioid addiction) and narrowing down your results on the left side of the page. Have questions about discovery search? Email
