Introducing SearchBox

What is SearchBox?

SearchBox is a search engine that provides a single starting point to find and access the University Libraries' resources — including books, scholarly journals and journal articles, ebooks, and more.  From a single box, SearchBox searches full-text content, article citations, and library catalog records and returns a list of results ranked by relevance.  SearchBox is a quick and easy way to start your research. [Please note: SearchBox has its own database called "Knowledge base". It doesn't search our other subscription databases, but it can access the full-text articles from other subscription databases.]

What can I find with SearchBox?

Use SearchBox to find books in WRLC catalog and journal articles.  SearchBox's index represents over 6,800 publishers, over half a billion articles from nearly 100,000 journals, newspapers, and magazines.  For a complete list of publishers and titles, please see http://www.serialssolutions.com/summon-content-and-coverage/

How do I use SearchBox?

To search in SearchBox, use the box above or go to http://libraries.cua.edu and enter your search terms in the box under the SearchBox logo, and click "Search".  Use the options on the left sidebar to narrow your search.  For more specific information, see the Navigating SearchBox and the How do I...? tab.

When should I use SearchBox?

Use SearchBox as a starting point for your research or if you already have a citation for an item and only want to find the full-text of that article quickly if the library subscribes it.  For more information, see the When to Use SearchBox tab.
