What is Quick Search?
Quick Search is Cline Library's discovery tool. It combines the "library catalog" and many of our online databases into one search. Quick Search is a good starting point for your research. If you are doing more advanced research in a specific discipline, you may want to use a specific database.
Books (physical and ebooks)
Journals (print and ejournals)
Media items such as streaming videos, CDs, DVDs
Note: Using the "Expand Results" feature will add items not available from Cline Library. NAU and CCC students, faculty and staff can use Document Delivery to obtain these items.
