Using Eagle Library Search

What is the Eagle Library Search?

Eagle Library Search, or ELS for short is a search tool that allows you to search the majority of the library's physical and electronic resources simultaneously along with additional sources such as Research Guides, Library information, HCC program information, and scholarly open access resources.

ELS brings you results in all material types and from all of these resources in a single list which can then be manipulated by editing your search terms, narrowing your source types, or selecting only certain providers.
