EBSCO Discovery Service is a library search engine that searches through NCI Library's collection of books, ejournals, newspaper articles, theses and more. Discovery provides a single unified search box where you can search through all of the library's separate databases at one time. It is often the best place to start your research.
There are a few places where you can access Discovery:
*Note: At times, you may be prompted with a login window for EBSCO. When the login box to the right appears use x, your student number and your regular password.
When you are beginning your research.
When you need to browse and access all of the library's electronic resources quickly.
To get an overview of the resources available on your topic.
Do NOT use:
When you are looking for early release conference proceedings or journal articles; these will often not be available until final publication.
When you are doing legal research, particularly cases; the law resources are available separately. (Law Subject Guide)
When you are looking for company and industry reports; these are available in specific business databases (e.g. Business Source Complete and Proquest Business Collection).
