Search Tips: Quicksearch

This page provides some tips on using Quicksearch

Quicksearch unites several search services under one discovery interface. 

The services initially targeted for this discovery interface include:

  • the main Library catalog (Orbis), where you will find books and other material held in the Yale University Library. This section is called Books+.
  • the Law Library catalog (Morris), where you will find books and other material held in the Yale Lillian goldman Law Library (also in Books+).
  • selected records from the HathiTrust Digital Library and Internet Archive (also in Books+)
  • licensed e-resources, where you will find journal articles, newspaper articles, dissertations and other material (in Articles+).
  • digitized images, archival documents, and other materials in the Yale University Library's primary Digital Collections repository (in Digital Collections)
  • catalog records for manuscripts and archival collections, as well as records from our archival finding aids, in Archives at Yale (in Archives or Manuscripts).
  • new arrivals records from Books+ and Archives or Manuscripts

Please send all your questions, comments, and other feedback on any aspect of the Quicksearch.
