More information about Searchlight

SEARCHLIGHT has a "Quick Search" mode that simultaneously searches the following databases: Academic Search Premier, Business Source Premier, Medline, PAIS, Periodicals Index Online, PsycINFO, and Web of Science.

The "Advanced Search" offers two choices to help you find information on your research topic: "Search by Subject" and "Search by Databases." In either interface, you can pre-select subjects or databases to optimize the performance and results of the search.

Searchlight search results are organized by topics, date of publication, journals, or authors. The search results have an option to "Show Abstract" that enable users to read the abstract of each article and assess its usefulness. The search results are also accompanied by the "Search for Article" button Search  for Article that will take the user to the article content if the article is part of the Libraries' collections.
