Lightner Discovery: Basic Search

Basic Search

Basic Search

Basic Search will work well when searching for broad topics and it is a good place to start your research. However, consider using the Advanced Search option when looking for information which focuses on a specific aspect of a topic, or while searching for journal articles.

From the library's homepage, simply enter your search terms in the Lightner Discovery search box. Then click the magnifying glass. 

Research Starter

With basic searches, you will often get a RESEARCH STARTER, which is a great resource for background information and key concepts.
