EBSCO Discovery Service may look like EBSCOhost databases such as Academic Search Complete or CINAHL Plus, but it's so much more!

EBSCO Discovery Service doesn't just search content the university library has subscribed to from EBSCO, but also content from many other publishers across all of our databases and collections.  Use EBSCO Discovery Service instead of the open web and you’ll find hundreds of magazine and journal articles, primary sources, educational videos, encyclopedia articles, e-books and more in just minutes.  EBSCO Discovery Service will always at first show you items you have access to the full text of, which can often significantly cut down your research time compared to searching just with search engines like Google Scholar, where you will come across many items that are behind a paywall.  

EBSCO Discovery Service is embedded right on the library website (it's the "big blue box") or you can access it here:
