About Quicksearch

Our new default library search

What am I searching when I use Quicksearch?

  • A growing collection of e-books and articles from a variety of databases
  • All the books, videos, music, special collections, ebooks and more from our Library Catalog
  • 90% of DePauw University's journal subscriptions
  • Content from our Digital Library

How do I narrow results or refine my search to items in the catalog only?

  • Use the filters on the left side of the results screen to limit your search by Library
  • Or, you can change your search scope to search only the Library Catalog
  • You can also choose On Shelf in the Library to view only available items (items not checked out)


How do I get to the full-text or abstract of an article?

  • Click the Find it tab to view the full-text options
  • Click the Details tab to see if an article description is available
  • Sometimes More Like This is an option to view additional articles related to the result
  • If the library does not subscribe to the article in full-text, you may click the ILL/Reserves tab to request a copy from Interlibrary Loan
  • If you continue to have trouble, Ask a Librarian


 How do I get to the old catalog search, databases, etc.?

  •  Clicking More Search Options drops down links to our old catalog search, databases, etc.
