MySearch

mySearch

 

MySearch cross-searches many of BUs collections and research databases.

  • Remember: once you have run a keyword search and have a results list, use the Full-Text filter to bring back results that can be downloaded and read online.
  • Because mySearch searches through information from many different subjects you will need to think carefully about what keywords and search strings to use in order to reduce noise (irrelevant results). You can find more information about this in our Advanced Searching Guide
