Library One Search

Library One Search is the best starting point for your research.  It is like a Google search for resources in the ASU Library.  You will retrive books, journal and magazine articles, dissertations, media and anything else that may be relevant from the Libraries' collections.  A majority of items you retrieve include links to the full text online.

Most Useful Literature Indexes

General Indexes with Literary Content

The first two Academic Search Premier and Humanities Full Text are the most useful for starting research. 

Google Books

A Google Books search can be invaluable for finding relevant information buried in books.  Since Google Books can search through the whole text of a book title, you can uncover material that previously would have required you to read the book.
