What is Find it...?
Need an article? Need a book? Need more information about a subject? Need a place to start? The Library's new Find It tool will do just what the name suggests. Find and connect to a vast collection of library resources, including scholarly articles, books, ebooks, reference entries, videos, journals, magazines, newspapers, and more, within one search. Use Find It to search for specific titles, subjects, authors, or browse by keyword or subject.
Find it... Explained
What Happened to the Library Catalog?
The Find it... tool replaces the library catalog of materials as the new interface to find the physical materials at Ross Pendergraft Library. Use the search option, Tech Collections, to limit your search to just books, ebooks, journals, DVDs, CDs, streaming media, microforms and more at the library or available online.
What is included in an Everything search?
Almost everything! All of the material listed above, plus full-text articles from most of the library's scholarly databases. Use this option to find both articles and books, physical items within the Library, or electronic resources accessible from anywhere. Some of our most popular indexed databases included in Find it...:
  • EBSCO Academic Search Complete
  • EBSCO eBook Collection
  • LexisNexis Academic
  • Literature Resource Center
  • ProQuest Central
  • Web of Science
What is not included in Find it...?
While Find it... can retrieve full-text results from most of our databases, there are some specialized databases it does not include. Results from Worldcat, Naxos Music Library, Statista, CCH Tax Research Network, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Indexes, Digital Sanborn Maps, Psychotherapy.net, and a few others are not included. Additionally, some features unique to the native database interface such as thesauruses, special limiters, and citation metrics are also not available in Find it.... However, you can still find all of the library's databases at our A-Z Database list.
