Did you know there is a way to search across all of our databases?

You can search across all the databases with Spartan Search, which is the search box you see on the Phillips Library home page. You can also access it here

After you search for something, use tools on the left side to filter. Peer-reviewed and available online are particularly useful options. You can also filter by the resource type (articles, books, etc.), the subject, or the journal-title. Once you have made your selections, be sure to apply the filters. If you want to lock them in for future searches, there is a remember filters option that will lock them in!

You can also search in individual databases that may be relevant to you, like these.
