Coming Soon: New and Improved APPsearch

APPsearch will soon have a new search engine. This summer, we are switching to EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). You will notice a new interface (but familiar to those who already search EBSCO products), basic and advanced search options, searching simultaneously across content from over 100 library databases and the library catalog, along with quick display of search results.

You can try it out now and tell us what you think. We are planning on going live at the end of June.
