Search & Find

Search & Find is the main search box on the MU Libraries home page.  

Things to know about it:

  • Google-like (very large)
  • Searches articles AND books
  • Searches ONLY what MU owns
  • Full text may be a few clicks away
  • Natural language searches are OK
  • Harder to do precise searches

Is it better than Academic Search Complete?  You decide!

Google Scholar

Google Scholar is very current, with links to articles citing other articles.  Some scholars have created Scholar Profiles that can be very useful in finding an author's most cited works, including books, which are underrepresented in databases like Scopus.
