When you use the Discover Library Catalog, you can choose between three major scopes or areas of searching:
1.Clark Libraries, 2. Clark + Summit, or 3. Clark + Summit + articles.
Clark + Summit + articles, or the global search, is a comprehensive search option in Discover that searches everything, including articles from library databases and other online journal sources, but does not include all results from databases at Clark College Libraries.
For more in-depth research, search directly in specific library databases, especially for subject-specific topics (for example, Access Medicine for medical research, Lexis/Nexis for legal research, Oxford Encyclopedia of Art and Artstor for art history, etc.).
In Discover search scopes,
articles = articles + other resources…
from library databases, open access journals & online collections...
Summit (Summit Libraries Network) = books, DVDs...@ other institutions, delivered to you
Clark = books, ebooks, journals, CDs, DVDs, streaming videos, equipment, course reserves...@your library
