Bringing the ease of web searching to scholarly resources, Cowles SuperSearch provides a single-search interface for nearly 100 key databases, the Library Catalog and Drake Escholarshare (the University’s institutional repository holding theses, dissertations, faculty publications and more). SuperSearch includes a carefully configured feature set and adds a locally-created customization that allows users to jump from SuperSearch to the native search interface of each database with a single click.

Students and researchers who use SuperSearch can have confidence in the quality of results returned for their search that is not possible with a general web search engine: “search you can trust.” SuperSearch can be accessed from any page on the Library’s website.
