Advice: Use the new library search box to find a range of information from every discipline.
Why: Before the library’s new search box came along, you’d have to search books, articles, and other items separately, and dig into databases to find information. Now most of what the library owns is searchable from a single box! The search box at www.ithacalibrary.com will automatically search books, movies, articles, reviews, and newspapers. You can also narrow your search in any number of ways. You might get too much information, but you might find things you wouldn’t have found otherwise. Ultimately you’ll want to be working directly in databases, but the new search box can be a great way to start, or expand, your research. If you’d like some tips on using our new search, check out our research guide.
