You can search all the Library's eBooks & eJournals here.
eBooks: The Library has access to thousands of electronic books. You can search for them through typing keywords into the LibrarySearch box below or on the main Library homepage. Books can be read online or downloaded. You will need your MU login credentials to read these electronic resources.
eJournal: An academic journal is a specialist publication where academics and researchers can publish and communicate their work. A journal publishes articles, research papers and reviews of a high quality that have been reviewed by experts in the subject.
LibrarySearch is the Maynooth University library's catalogue. It allows you to search for books, journals, databases and all items held by the library in one place.
Databases are like big storage boxes of academic information and are often organised by a topic or subject. They contain journal articles, but also much more.
They're helpful if you're researching a topic in depth. If you want to find a database, try searching for it through LibrarySearch. For all Databases, see our A-Z of Databases.
A freely available search engine allowing a broad search across scholarly literature.
Beware: Google scholar has limitations. Academic research is standardised and often contained behind a paywall. As a student of MU, you are entitled to high standard, peer reviewed research from Maynooth LibrarySearch. So why not start your search there?
