Saint Search

Saint Search searches almost everything, including all of our books (e-books and print).  It searches most of Siena's databases which means it also looks for articles: journal articles, newspaper articles, and articles from periodicals of news and commentary.  Saint Search also provides some content not otherwise available from the Standish Library. Saint Search provides an enormous amount of content, which means one must take extra care in searching.  Luckily, Saint Search provides multiple ways to narrow searches.  Need help with Saint Search?  Check with a librarian.
