*CLICsearch: Getting Started with CLICsearch

Guide to CLICsearch at the University of St. Thomas Libraries.

CLICsearch Essentials

CLICsearch has two main functions:

  • It’s a discovery tool that helps you search for books, articles, media, and other library resources

  • It’s the new library account system for managing your check-outs, renewals, and hold requests

CLICsearch replaces both the broad search functionality of Summon and the catalog and requesting functionality of CLICnet.

  • CLIC + Online: Searches the physical materials of all CLIC libraries (books, CDs, etc.) plus St. Thomas’s online resources
  • CLIC Catalog: Searches all CLIC libraries’ physical materials (books, CDs, etc.), streaming audio and video, and some ebooks
  • Course Reserves: Searches any type of material put on reserve by professors
  • UST Digital Collections: Searches UST Research Online, a repository of scholarly and creative works created or sponsored by UST faculty, students, and staff, plus selected digitized content from the UST Libraries collections

CLICsearch is one part of your complete search. It does not include all of the content from the research databases to which St. Thomas subscribes. For discipline-specific searching, use the Libraries' databases.
