FindMore Search Engine
FindMore is a great Google-like search engine for interdisciplinary research. It searches across all subject areas and all document types including books, e-books, scholarly journal articles, newspaper articles, theses, dissertations, videos and more. FindMore also provides access to online full-text contents available in the NUS Libraries' catalogue and subscribed electronic resources.
Databases are a good place to begin research. You can search a database for information (on a particular subject, keyword, author, etc.) across multiple sources (journals, books, theses, etc.) simultaneously.
When starting your research, it is important to select the most appropriate database(s) for your topic and to be aware of the particularities and functionalities of individual databases.
The databases subscribed by NUS Libraries contain scholarly literature including peer-reviewed journal articles, books, book chapters, theses and dissertations , editorials, conference proceedings, patents, trade magazines, newspapers, reports, reviews...
If you need help in selecting the relevant databases(s) for your topic, check out the Databases tabs in our subject guides curated by our NUS Resource Librarians.
When using Google, confine your search to a credible and reliable site:
Use “site:[insert site URL]” for example:
"This unique free service allows you to search the websites of all intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), comprising over 3000 bodies including the United Nations, the European Commission, the World Bank, etc." (source: https://uia.org/igosearch)
