Three Ways to Search

The tab at the top left corner of the Library's Homepage provides three ways to search:

  • Discovery: searches all of Hofstra's resources regardless of format (print and electronic books, articles, videos, etc.)
  • Books/eBooks: searches all of the print and electronic books available at Hofsta
  • Articles: searches all of Hofstra's Research Databases for articles
    • You can search the Research Databases individually. Can be useful for discipline-specific searches
