For most Regent students, Summon, the Library’s search engine, is their introduction to online research. Summon is the best way to start most research projects, but if you’re looking for the best multi-disciplinary database to search in conjunction with Summon, we suggest Academic Search Complete. This world-renown database features nearly 3,000 peer-reviewed, full-text journals, 3,500 periodicals, 75,000 videos, and indexing and links to 4,700 open access journals. Just as important as quantity of content is the effectiveness of the searching platform. EBSCO offers unsurpassed intuitive searching across all academic disciplines for all levels of research experience. To begin searching Academic Search Complete, click here.
