What is GCLSearch?

GCLSearch is powered by the EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). EDS provides users with an easy, yet powerful means of accessing all of the library's resources through a single search. It is excellent for everyday users, students, and researchers alike! Get books, journals, magazines, research starters and more all in one search.

Did you know that we offer a search experience just for kids too? Check out Explora for a kid-centered search experience.
