About Discovery Search
What am I searching when I use Discovery Search?
- All of WorldCat in a new interface called WorldCat Discovery
- A growing collection of e-books and articles from a variety of databases
- All the books, videos, music, special collections, and more at DePauw Libraries
Can I still search the databases directly?
- Yes! We have not changed access to any databases. These can be accessed from the Databases link on the home page.
How do I narrow results to just DePauw stuff?
- Use the filters on the left side of the results screen to limit your results by Library
- Click on a title to view the Availability tab which includes the library name and call number
How do I get to the full-text or abstract of an article?
- Narrow results by checking the box for Article/Chapter in the Format filter at the left
- Click the Access online button to view the full-text
- Click the title and then the Description tab for more information such as an article abstract or additional full-text options
- If the library does not subscribe to the article in full-text, you may click the Request Item button on the Availability tab to request a copy from Interlibrary Loan
