What is Discover?

DISCOVER is Athabasca University Library's new search tool. It allows students, faculty and staff to search across a substantial number of resources using one search box.

Designed as an easy way to search across different platforms, it allows quick and easy access to a variety of resources, including many of AU Library's subscribed journal databases, selected open access journals and resources, e-book collections, and books and media from AU Library's catalogue. DISCOVER utilizes a search interface already familiar to many AU users, and allows users to conduct both basic and advanced searches.

In addition to the main DISCOVER search box, we have also created a search box that allows you to search for Scholarly Articles specifically. This search will not generally include books, e-books and will focus on journal articles instead.

The third tab on the page allows you to search for books and media in AU Library's catalogue.
