Search for articles in multiple databases simultaneously and receive alerts for new articles on topics you choose.


xSearch lets you search multiple electronic resources simultaneously, including:

  • Citations, abstracts, and indices for books, book reviews, journal articles, conference proceedings, dissertations, patents, and reports
  • Full-text books
  • Journals, news sources, and reference materials
  • Library catalogs
  • Data sets
  • Special and archival collections

Most xSearch resources are in the English language and cover business, humanities, social sciences, science and engineering, and area and international studies. Custom search parameters have been created by Subject Librarians (you can also create your own). xSearch supports reference manager software programs (e.g., EndNote and RefWorks), and lets you print or email items.

Please note that many databases licensed by the libraries are not part of xSearch. Our comprehensive Databases and Articles list and Topic Guides may help you find additional resources.
