Find it! is a search interface which allows you to search up to ten databases, including the library catalog, at the same time, and to link from your search to full text resources and other services. Additional features include the ability to save favorite databases into your own search set, and to save searches and records.
- Use QuickSearch to perform a Google-like search on multiple databases. Your search will be run in the databases listed in the General Quickset unless you choose another Quickset (by clicking the radio button in front of it, or, on the library homepage, opening the drop-down list). Click on a Quickset name to see the resources included.
- Use Find Database to find a specific database.
- Use MultiSearch to find and search one or more databases grouped by subject.
'MetaLib' is the original product name for Find it!, so you may see that name here and there when using it. The Washington University Libraries have chosen instead to call it Find it! because we feel it more accurately describes this tool.
