SearchBox is a Google-style search experience for the vast majority of the library’s electronic resources, the WRLC catalog, and other locally available content (e.g. Library Subject Guides, American University Digital Repository). From a single box, SearchBox searches full-text content, article citations, and library catalog records and returns a list of results ranked by relevance.

The WRLC Catalog, on the other hand, is better suited for more complex and sophisticated searches that take advantage of controlled vocabularies or specialized platform features.
