The Discovery Service is a combined search option through which you can search for articles on your topic across more than 60 databases as well as for books, videos, etc. held in the UNH Library.

Among the databases you can search simultaneously are Academic Search Complete, Historical Abstracts, Anthropological Literature, Family Studies Abstracts, JSTOR, and Women's Studies International.

The Discovery Service search box can be found under the  "Articles" tab on the library homepage.
