EZsearch is what is known as a "discovery tool." It is essentially a single point of entry for the library's online resources - that is, all databases, including the online book catalog. It is also possible to add results beyond the library's collection.
The key to using EZsearch effectively is to refine your search, using the limiters found in the left hand column. An advanced search page is available. Once you've run a search, simply click on the gear icon at the end of the search box.
(NOTE: The search box shown above is not live. EZsearch is located on the main Library webpage at http://www.mtaloy.edu/library/,
