Compass Search

What is Compass?

Compass is a search tool that provides a broad search of the Stephen B. Luce Library collection. By using search techniques and filters, you can narrow your search to quickly find the resources you're looking for.

How do I start my search?

Depending on what you're looking for, there are three search options within Compass to chose from:

  1. Available in Library Collection : This default search includes all catalog items, journal articles, and e-books to provide a broad search of the items in our physical and digital collections.
  2. Catalog Only: Use this tab to search titles of physical and electronic resources (books, DVDs, and more). 
  3. Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journals : Search electronic content and journal subscriptions (journals, articles, and other electronic resources). 

When should I use Compass?

  • You are starting your research
  • You need to easily filter down search results
  • You are looking for something in the library catalog



Here are some resources to use to find information on specific technologies. Different resources will give you different types of information to help you build a well-rounded report. The resources below are good general resources.
