- E-journal collections like JSTOR and Science Direct.
- Legal, government, and company information.
Using Discovery Search
Discovery Search retrieves all of the items it can find that meet your search terms, whether from individual publishers or from open-access scholarly repositories. Additionally, your search will include items not currently owned by Clarkson University Libraries. “Held by Other Libraries Worldwide” indicates an item can be requested through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
Not everything we own is included in the Discovery Search, so you may wish to search individual research databases using the list of Databases. See the “Databases Included” list below for a complete list of resources indexed in the Discovery Search platform.
