Grace Library upgraded from Academic Search Premier to Academic Search Complete. You will now find more full text journals and articles through Grace Library!

Grace Library is happy to welcome the new Executive Director of the Library and Learning Commons, Michael B. Jones, Ph. D., to Carlow University! 


Now you can search once and be done with your research! Grace Library now features "Library Search" which is similar to Google. Enter in your search terms (keywords, title, author, etc.) and it will magically search all of the library's resources including articles and books. 



The library improved its services to off-campus students for finding articles. Say good bye to the off-campus buttons. Now everyone uses the same list of databases on the library’s website to do research and access articles. The list of databases looks a little different and they are in alphabetical order but they can be narrowed down by subject. If you are not on campus and select a specific database to use, you will still be required to login using your Carlow active username and password but it will automatically redirect you to the search screen of the database. 

To search a database, go to the library’s website and click on the “Find Articles, Journals, and Videos” box. Select the “Find Articles” link to see a list of databases that you have access to.
