Searching discoverE by Title: Emory’s primary library search tool is called discoverE. It’s a newer style of catalog known in the business as a discovery tool – in fact, it’s designed to work more like Web search engines do. But students and faculty might find the interface a little unusual, especially if they’re used to using other, older electronic catalogs at different libraries.

Librarians at the Robert W. Woodruff Library have been working on a series of short videos posted to YouTube and iTunes U on how to make the most of discoverE. Each is based on questions we’ve received from patrons who would like to become more familiar with the tool. Some of the questions are easy, and others are more in-depth. We’ll feature each video on the Librarian’s Blog.
Searching for an item by its title is a good place to start. Perhaps you’re working on a paper and you see the title of a related work in a list of resources. Or you’re looking for a book listed in your professor’s suggested readings. This video will help you get started using discoverE to find an item by its title in the Emory Libraries.
