UMass Global Library: Home

Welcome to the University of Massachusetts Global Library!

Here you will find the resources you need for your research projects as well as the help you need to use library resources efficiently, effectively, and ethically.



Start Your Research with Global Search

The library's Global Search tool allows you to research many of our individual collections all at once. Start here if you’re new to the research process or if your research topic spans more than one subject area.

Improve your search using advanced search screens, available in most research databases. Unlike a basic search that allows you to enter just a few keywords, advanced search allows you to apply various attributes to the search in order to maximize the relevance of your results. Learn how on the Advanced Search in Library Databases guide.

Did You Know? The library provides access to 100 general and subject-specific databases. If Global Search is giving you too many results, try searching a database that’s relevant to your topic. Need help? Ask A Librarian
