Databases MultiSearch - Library - University of Canterbury

MultiSearch (via Summon)

MultiSearch lets you quickly search across a range of the Library’s resources in one place, including the library catalogue, most library databases, and some digital collections.

MultiSearch is designed to make it quick and easy to begin researching a topic. It is not a replacement for the detailed and precise search tools available from individual subject specific databases.

  • narrow your search through the use of system generated subject terms
  • limit to journal articles

Advanced Search

The advanced search offers more search options.


See the help tab on the top-right of the Multisearch home page or contact your subject librarian.
