New Extend Search Option

The Extend Search function in the AUR Library Catalog has added an option: Scirus. The Scirus database has hundreds of millions of pages of "scientific" information on the web, but "scientific" should not be read too literally here. There are lots of resources on literature, art, archaeology, classics, and so on.

One part of Scirus is the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD), which provides access to many dissertations and theses from around the world. Searching is still a little strange, but there are some excellent and important sources in this database, the vast majority for free.

Give it a try!
