Rather than having to search each of our tools separately, you can search most of them simultaneously using MACKsearch. That makes finding useful, relevant information on your topic much quicker than in the past.
MACKsearch offers an intuitive, easy to use interface with advanced search tools like limiters that allow you to easily refine your search and find what you are looking for.
McQuade Librarians have designed MACKsearch with our patrons in mind. We made sure that MACKsearch would provide all the tools, content, and features needed to empower our users to find what they need.
Great for Initial Research
MACKsearch is a great tool to start any research project. It allows you to gather general information on a topic and get a sense of the types of library resources that are available on that topic. Depending on the results, patrons may need to explore more specific resources or take advantage of other services such as Interlibrary Loan and research appointments.
Numerous tools in MACKsearch's right column allow patrons to print, save, export, cite, and email many of the resources making the process of retaining and ethically using the discovered information simple and user-friendly.
Full Text Resources
When available, you will be provided immediate access to full text resources. When not available, links are provided for quick access to our interlibrary loan forms so that full text can be requested.
MACKsearch can be used on and off campus. To use off campus, you will need to provide their MackCard barcode and library password.
