Quicksearch Beta: A new library search tool

10 February 2015 - 9:40am by Andy Hickner

Medical Library users are invited to test a new online search tool, Quicksearch Beta, offered by Yale University Library.

The Quicksearch Project is the Library's effort to unite several of its online services under one discovery interface.  Quicksearch Beta performs a combined search of:

  • Books+ (books, journals, online resources, videos, and more) which searches Orbis (the YUL catalog) and Morris (the Law Library's catalog); and
  • Articles+ (journal articles, e-books, dissertations, and more)

For Medical Library users, we suggest trying Books+ as an alternative to searching library holdings in Orbis.  We suggest trying Articles+ as an alternative to Google Scholar or Google searching, for example to find journal and newspaper articles on non-biomedical topics.
