Search Discover:

Discover is your academic search engine, allowing you to quickly search for a broad range of material in your topic area. Some resources are not yet searchable on Discover however, so you may also want to search separately on Lexis Library and Westlaw if you are searching for case law and legislation. However Discover can help you find books, and other journal articles, which might be useful if you are researching material for an extended essay or dissertation.
