Discovery Search: Accessing Discovery Search

A guide to using VT Libraries' new Discovery Search.

What Is Discovery Search?

The library’s discovery system has changed from Summon to EBSCO’s discovery system, Discovery Search. Discovery systems include records for most of the library’s resources: our physical collections, our journal and ebook subscriptions, streaming videos, reports, government publications, and much more. You can still use limiters to narrow your search results by the format, date of publication, peer-reviewed, and availability online. 

Locating Discovery Search

Find Discovery Search on the library's homepage, right at the top of the page.
