This quick search tool was developed in the MIT Libraries to make it easier to find books, movies, music, articles, journals, and the other valuable resources that the Libraries offer. Results are sorted into categories – books and media, articles and journals, and library website – to make it easier to scan and find a specific items.

Why this experiment?

The goals of this experiment were to:

  • make it easier to find known items,
  • provide a straightforward entry point for new library users,
  • and begin to own and improve on the discovery experience for the Libraries community.

Where can I find this tool now?

Use the “All” tab in the blue search area of the MIT Libraries homepage.
