New to the UA Libraries? This video tutorial gives an overview of the Libraries' main search tools.

Scout is the libraries' main search tool. It searches most of our databases as well as the catalog. The video tutorials below guide you through searching in Scout.

If you need materials that aren't available in the UA catalog, you can request them from another library via interlibrary loan. You can receive copies of physical books or scans of articles and book chapters. The video tutorial below provides instructions for setting up your account and requesting materials. A transcript is available at the link.
