SwoopSearch allows you to search through many of our databases and the library catalog simultaneously. SwoopSearch is a very broad search. For more advanced searching, consult the databases in your subject. These databases provide direct access to specific types of research and offer more advanced searching options.
Use Advanced Search for more options:
You can make use of the "Tweak my Results" options on the results page to narrow your results (by Availability, Resource Type, Subject, Author/Creator, Creation Date, Library, Collection, Language, Journal Title, or Location).
Logging in will allow you to pin items as favorites and be able to go back to them. It will also allow you to save searches and set up search alerts. This login is not the login to access library resources. If you are working off-campus, you should be prompted to login with your Patriots credentials in order to access the library resources (for example, when you try to access a database directly or if you try to access an article that you find through SwoopSearch).
You can manage items that you have checked out through your Library Account.
Wondering if we have a specific book or maybe books on a specific topic? Search the library catalog to find out!
Librarians create and maintain guides for specific subjects as well as on general topics. In these guides are many resources that will be useful in conducting your library research.
You can pull up a list of Guides by Subject using the link in the search box or under Research in the drop-down menu on the left side of the Library's website.
Your subject guide is a central location for library resources relevant to your subject. Find information about how to use the library resources, highlighted resources for your subject, tutorials, links to useful websites, information about writing & citing, and library services for distance students. The guides are updated periodically.
