What is LibSearch?

Libsearch has several functions:

  • It’s a discovery tool that helps you search for books, articles, media, and other library resources.
  • It's the online library catalog which you can use to request items from St. Kate's, and MnPALS Partner libraries.
  • It’s the library account system for managing your check-outs, renewals, and hold requests.

What am I searching?


LibSearch draws its results from the following sources:

  • Print books, journals, and media from MnPALS Partner Library collections

  • Articles, ebooks, and streaming media from online databases

  • St. Kate's digital collections, including Sophia Repository and Sophia Scholar (faculty works).

When Should I Search a Specific Database Rather than LibSearch?

When you are doing advanced-level research or specific disciplinary research, it is better to use a specific database for that field of study. You can search for databases by subject or use a research guide to determine databases for a specific discipline.
