This search includes the overall largest number of resources.

  • All of the Library’s journal articles, e-books, most subscribed research databases and indexes including MEDLINE and CINAHL, etc.

Start here for most research, in any subject.

This search includes PubMed and its included resource MEDLINE, the premier biomedical research database in the world.

You can search PubMed freely anywhere, but if you start at the Library's site, you can include all of the full-text journals that ATSU provides.

How will you know the type of book you're looking at?

To find eBooks

  • On the left side of the book record, you will see a book symbol with an 'e'.
  • The book location should also read 'ATSU - Elec Resource'. These books will only be available online. 


To find physical copies of books

  • On the left side of the book record, you will see a book symbol. There will not be an 'e' on the image.
  • The book location will either read ATSU-AZ or ATSU-MO. These books will only be available in person. You will also be able to see the call number for the book and if it is currently available or already checked out.
