Using Mason Libraries Search
Mason Libraries Search retrieves items that satisfy your search terms from the collections of Mason's libraries, from individual publishers and from open-access scholarly repositories. You may also expand your search results to include items where immediate access is not possible by using the "Expand My Results" option on the search results page. For more in-depth research, you'll also want to consult our Database Portal to search content that isn't necessarily included within Libraries Search.
You can access items held by other institutions via our Interlibrary Loan Service, or in-person visits to Washington Research Library Consortium member libraries.
