ECU Worldsearch is a search engine that searches across the Library's books (print and online) and online journal articles.

From your search you can link directly to the full text of journal articles and ebooks or to the catalogue for finding print books and other resources on the shelves. Access ECU Worldsearch from the Library Homepage using your ADS login at the prompt.

Search tips: Use the limit options in the left hand side bar to refine your search. e.g. limit to books, journal articles, full text online, articles from scholarly publications, peer reviewed, etc. You can also limit by date or an additional subject term.
