Academic Search Complete

Academic Search Complete is one of the largest databases at Penn State, and forms a comprehensive scholarly, multi-disciplinary full-text database, with more than 5,300 full-text periodicals.

ASC allows searching in two modes: advanced mode, where you string terms together using AND, OR, or NOT, or basic mode which functions much more like LionSearch. Advanced mode is the default.

Search results are sorted by publication date, with the most recent resources at the top of the list. Results can be limited by many different facets, including: full text, peer-reviewed journals, subject terms, and publication date.
