LionSearch is a “one stop” search tool that can be used to search for articles, books, and other resources from the collections of the Penn State University Libraries and electronic full-text databases. LionSearch includes records from The CAT, electronic resources, and local Penn State collections. A small number of Libraries’ resources are not indexed by LionSearch.
To use LionSearch, locate the “FIND” section of the University Libraries’ home page, click on the "Books, Articles, and More" tab, type in some key words in the search box, and click the search button.
