Direct access to databases and library catalog

All resources available through Hiebert Library may be found by using the Encore Discovery Service. The discovery service combines the resources from the library's catalog together with all online article databases and many other digital resources. Any search done from the library web page or encore.fresno.edu uses the Encore Discovery Service.

For a detailed overview of what Encore offers and how to use it efficiently, we've created a comprehensive library guide called: What is Encore?

You probably don't actually want to access the library's online databases directly. We strongly recommend that you not  use this method as a substitute for searching the library discovery service. You will get much more thorough results by letting the discovery service combine all possible library resources than if you pre-select one particular database from the list below. Some instructors may have told you to "search EBSCO" in order to find a particular resource, but they should have told you simply to search the library's discovery service.

Go ahead and click here if you've already tried to access the library discovery service and it is returning no results. Otherwise, use the discovery service!
