The search box in the center of the UMKC Libraries website now uses a different product to search across the Libraries’ collections for articles, books, eBooks, reports, media, news, and more. The new product, EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) by EBSCO, searches a similar set of materials and collections as the old one, but the results look quite different. For a quick tour, watch this introductory video.

The search box is a good place to begin general research or to search for a particular item using citation information (for example, typing in an article title to track it down in a journal). If you have a better idea of what you need or where to find it, go straight to the relevant discipline-specific database, to the list of eJournals, or to the library catalog for books, eBooks and media.

The search box on the website will need you to log in using your UMKC Single Sign On. Guest users can click the Guest Access link below the search box to search EDS but will have limited access to search results and library collections.
