Auburn University Libraries has launched the next step in powerful research tools with the addition of Discovery. The Discovery interface is located centrally on the AU Libraries’ web page and reduces the need to make several individual searches, as searches in Discovery produce results from many of the resources that previously required dedicated searches to obtain.

Additional advantages for users over the former catalog search tool include: quicker access to more information resources (including article databases), integrated research starters to jump-start research, richer facets for making searches more focused, and an integral search history feature enabling users to save and retrieve searches via their EBSCOhost accounts.

For additional help in using the Discovery search tool contact a subject librarian, visit the RBD Library Help Desk on 2nd Floor, or use the “Chat Online Now” link on the main AU Libraries page. Help is also available by phone at (334) 844-1737.

Please direct feedback and problems regarding Discovery to libwebm@auburn.edu. Users may also use the Feedback form: https://www.lib.auburn.edu/feedback/EDS/form.html.
