Bison Search searches everything Beaman Library has access to, except for Dissertations and Thesis. It is a Google-like search bar that provides you with result filters to narrow down your search.
Research Guides were created to help you navigate the resources available to you within a particular discipline or major. Research Guides are a great place to start looking for information about a topic in your field.
Searching a subject-specific database is similar to using Bison Search, but usually generates more limited and narrow results.
You can find a full list of Beaman Library's databases using our Databases list, or you can find subject-specific databases by using the databases tab in your discipline's Research Guide.
If you would like more specific tips or strategies for searching, please reach out to one of your Beaman Librarians for additional research assistance, or schedule a Research Appointment.
