Search tools

There are three major tools for finding material for your research projects. Here's a quick summary of those tools. Click on the FrogScholar & the catalog tab above for a further look.

  FrogScholar is a flexible, Google-like search tool available from the search box at library.tcu.edu, accessing everything that the catalog does, PLUS 
most of TCU's databases, connecting you to books, journal and newspaper articles, videos and more.
     
  The TCU Library catalog is a precision tool for obtaining information on books, DVDs, journals and more, with direct access to some online materials 
like ebooks and streaming videos. It does NOT find articles within journals. The catalog is available from the library homepage or library.tcu.edu/catalog.
     
  Databases are specialized online collections of materials such as journal articles, book chapters, images/music/videos, maps, reports, statistics and 
much more. Each database vendor (for example, Alexander Street Press) has its own search interface. Find the databases from the center section at library.tcu.edu and from most of the Patron Services pages.
