A simple and fast search engine that helps you find relevant information on any topic from the University of Missouri Libraries’ collections. Results contain citations for scholarly journal articles, books and e-books, DVDs, magazines, newspapers, and dissertations.
Discover@MU provides one search covering MOST (but not all) of the content the Libraries provide.
Once you have search results on the screen, you can tailor these by using limits in the left sidebar or by using the drop-down menus in the search box to make your search more precise.
The default is to search just materials immediately available at MU, but untick the box in the left sidebar to extend your search to things we can get via interlibrary loan.
The results sort by relevancy (i.e. how often your search terms appear) but you can resort by date.
Remember basic search techniques:
Provide synonyms or narrower/broader terms combined with OR:
Soviet OR Stalin* OR totalitarian
Narrow your focus by combining ideas/topics with AND: fashion AND (Soviet OR Stalin* OR totalitarian)
Truncate with an asterisk to retrieve variant endings: Stalin* retrieves Stalin, Stalin's, Stalinism, Stalinist, Stalinists
Remember to truncate to find British spellings as well as English.
Subject heading searches give more focus and are usually in English. For other searches remember to add keywords in other languages.

Some Print Indexes
Most of our online databases have only limited coverage prior to the 1980s. You may want to consult older printed indexes to discover articles published in earlier years. These usually give only citations, using abbreviations or a numeric code for the journal titles. These are usually spelled out in the front of each volume. Once you've identified a journal, you need to look it up using our Journal Finderto see if we have the volume/issue you need and where it is, either online or in print.
Catalogs, such as MERLIN or MOBIUS, provide an inventory of books held by libraries. Typically they do not search or provide the full text of books or other materials online. Google Book Search or the Hathi Trust search the full text of books, but often can display only portions of the text due to copyright restrictions. Follow the "find in a library" links in these to locate the physical book in a library.
Google Books contains the full text of books provided by libraries and publishers. Materials that are out of copyright (generally pre-1925) can be viewed online. For more recent books, Google Book Search functions as a detailed index. Books identified may be available at MU, via MOBIUS, or may be requested through ILL@MU.
The Hathi Trust Digital Library contains digital copies of more than 10 million volumes in over 400 languages, printed from 1500-present. Over 3 million volumes are in the public domain and can be viewed/printed/downloaded. Other volumes can be searched, but viewing is restricted. The Digital Library combines full-text searching with the traditional library catalog to facilitate sophisticated queries and easy browsing. MU users can also build private or shared collections within the Digital Library. [more]
