EagleSearch--EBSCO's discovery tool--gives a quick overview of the Library's resources relevant to each search. A next-generation integrated search engine that combs through one-half billion documents/records instantaneously, EagleSearch works faster and more comprehensively than OneSearch, the Library’s previous all-in-one search tool.
To focus a search, go to advanced search and select one or more disciplines. To globalize it--that is, extend it beyond the ORU Library--uncheck the "Available in Library Collection" box.
To further refine the results, limit them to one or more source types or facets such as subjects, publications, and databases in the left menu. To continue the search in databases not searchable in EagleSearch, click one of the widgets in the right menu.
The Library has an extended free trial (ending June 30, 2015) to RILM Abstracts of Music Literature (RILM) and RILM Retrospective Abstracts of Music Literature (RILM Retro). To access these databases, select EBSCOhost Databases (all) from the Database List on the Library homepage, then "EBSCOhost Research Databases" and then "R".
For more information about RILM, see here.
