Library Search -- UVic Libraries' search engine


Learn more about how Library Search works

Library search is a tool you can use to find resources to support your learning, teaching, and research. The difference between Google and Library Search is that one only searches the Library's collection, which includes records for UVic books, ebooks, articles, conference proceedings, theses and dissertations, videos, and more. A single search in Library Search can return records from all of these sources. 

Some advantages over Google Scholar:

  • Library Search provides easy access to a massive amount of print and digital information provided specifically in support of teaching and research at UVic
  • Search results include books and ebooks from the UVic collection, as well as journal articles, newspaper articles, conference proceedings, dissertations, and more
  • Search results can be limited to scholarly or peer-reviewed sources with one click
  • Citations in your search results can be viewed in six commonly used citation formats (APA, AMA, MLA, Uniform, Chicago, and Harvard), exported to citation managers, emailed, and printed
