CofC Libraries Discovery Service: Search Scopes

How to guide for the College of Charleston Libraries Discovery Service -- search the library catalog and numerous databases all at once.

What are search scopes?

The Discovery Service can search many different things: the library's physical collections, many of our online databases, collections from other academic libraries across the state (PASCAL), and even research resources we don't have access to. 

Search scopes let you control which of those research collections you search so that you can efficiently find what you need.
