Overview

The Library Search allows you to search across the Library’s collections and includes:

  • Books, e-books, archival materials and media owned by Simmons University Library.
  • Research databases like Business Source Premier, CINAHL, APA PsycINFO
  • E-journal collections like JSTOR and Science Direct.
  • Legal, government, and company information.

Using Library Search

Library 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)

More Resources

Not everything we own is included in the Library Search, so you may wish to search individual research databases using the list of Databases. See the “Databases Included” tab for a complete list of resources indexed in the Library Search platform.

Not sure which database to search? Start with a Research Guide. If you have questions, ask a librarian.
