Q: What is Quicksearch?
Answered by: Jenn Nolte

Quicksearch is a single search interface that returns results from multiple library data sources.

You can access Quicksearch via this link: search.library.yale.edu

Using MARC records from the Orbis and Morris catalogs, Quicksearch beta creates a single index of our Morris and Orbis items. A MARC extract is performed every morning, 7 days a week, and the previous day's updated or added records are ingested into Quicksearch beta.

Quicksearch also pulls in e-resource items from our Articles+ service using an API.

Quicksearch will eventually include search results from other sources, including the library web site.

See the Quicksearch documentation site (web.library.yale.edu/quicksearch) for more information on searching- plus a few introductory videos!
