TigerSearch searches our library’s holdings along with the contents of most of our databases. SUMMA campers can use the hardcopy books in the library, but don't have access to ebooks and articles in databases.

The video below will show you how to search for and find books in the library.

Find Tigersearch on the library homepage.
