About SuperSearch


  • is a Google-like search of library resources. 
  • is the place to start your library research and discover information on any topic.
  • simultaneously searches the Wellesley College Library Catalog along with electronic books, journals, and databases. 
  • indexes over a billion sources including books, book chapters, eBooks, journal and newspaper articles, government documents, maps, music recordings, videos and more.
  • features continue to improve, and content is being added regularly.

Some things to consider when using SuperSearch:

  • While the breadth of coverage and ease of use make SuperSearch the perfect place to start your library research, it is not comprehensive.
  • For more in-depth library research use subject-specific databases in the Databases A-Z list. If you're not sure which databases to use, try our Research Guides.
  • There are multiple ways to refine your search on the left-hand side of the results list. (See Using SuperSearch Tab)
