Different search tools have different contents, different full-text access levels, and different search features. Familiarity with different classes of search tools can help you make an appropriate choice to fit the project.
Search engines like Google return searches with volumes of results, most of which is not scholarly in content.
Discovery tools (like Monroe Library's "QuickSearch") search the contents of our catalog and most databases. Results vary widely in format, formality, full-text access, and discipline. A discovery tool can be useful for beginning research or interdisciplinary assignments.
