Some databases focus on collecting articles about a specific subject, like biology or sports. But for subjects like history, paramedicine, or anthropology, where we have no dedicated databases, we can use QuickSearch. QuickSearch is a tool that will search many databases at once.

Quicksearch is also the default search box on the Mat-Su College Library website.

On the QuickSearch search page, you can quickly limit your results to a particular discipline with a single click. Here is an example of searching for anthropology articles:

In the search results, click on the title of an item to read it, or click the quotation mark icon in order to generate a citation:
