What is MavScholar?

MavScholar is a new, simple way to search for articles and books at the same time, across all subjects. It is the first tab on center of the library homepage.

Start with MavScholar when you are beginning your research, doing interdisciplinary searching, or looking for a specific book or article by title.

You may have better luck searching one of the disciplinary databases.
