Searching for Books and Articles

The Discovery Search works great for quick and easy access to the IUP libraries collection of books and articles. 

You can also search for articles separately using one of our large database interfaces or by searching subject-specific databases individually.

Library Search - Wide

Discovery Search Results

When searching be sure to choose a few words that describe your topic and combine those keywords using AND and OR. Never type in a complete sentence, and avoid using natural language words like in, the, of, where, about, etc.

** small edit: the image below uses an older screenshot when we called the service "Everything".  The Everything search is now called Discovery.
