Dual Enrollment Resources for Students and Teachers: Intro to MegaSearch

What is MegaSearch?

Intro to MegaSearch

MEGASearch is a way of searching multiple PCC Library's resources at the same time. From a single search box, you can search the library's online catalog, as well as many of our databases.  Find books, e-books, articles, videos, and more. 

How to do a search:

1) Enter your search terms on the Basic Search screen and click Search.

  2) Use the limiters on the left side to limit your results.  You can limit results by:

  • Items in the Library Catalog only (books, videos, etc. mainly physical items in library collection)
  • Scholarly journal articles
  • Date
  • Source type (e.g. books, e-books, videos, periodicals)
  • Subject headings
  • Campus

3. View Full Text Records or Retrieve Catalog Items

In the results list, you have the option of clicking the title of the item to view the full record.  You can also view the full-text directly if full-text of the article is available (either as HTML Full Text or PDF Full Text).  If the item is a book, you can click Retrieve the Catalog Item to put the book on hold, or get to the full record within the library catalog.
