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)
