What is Search-A-Lot?

Search-A-Lot  is a new Walsh Library search tool, which helps you start your search without selecting a specific resource. It does not replace the library’s catalog but is an additional "Google like" search tool for students looking to access a broad variety of resources in one powerful search. 


Important Note

If you use the Search-A-Lot option anywhere off-campus, you will need to sign in using your Walsh username and password.

Search-A-Lot Discovery Service

Our default for the quick search box is Search-A-Lot, which will search for books, articles, media, images and other resources in both the catalog and many of our databases. It's also referred to as a Discovery Tool because it can help you find resources you might not otherwise know about.

To search only Walsh Library resources, select the Books tab. For additional search options, choose any of the other tabs or the options on the left side of the library website.
