Research Pro – a new search tool now available at the State Library of WA

Ever been confused about which database to start with or which search engine to use?  Research Pro is a search tool that enables you to run your search across multiple search engines and databases.  Research Pro is now available for use by visitors to the State Library of Western Australia (once you are in the building you’ll find a link on our Main Catalogue page).

Research Pro enables you to search simultaneously across multiple databases – including resources selected from the library’s general and subject-specific subscription databases.

You can customise your search for better results e.g. uncheck the Best Bets box and select a subject group to search more relevant resources.  Results can be printed, emailed and downloaded.

Visit the Library and try this powerful, easy-to-use, and time saving search tool!

(We’d love to know what you think of Research Pro – if you’ve given it a try please take the Survey, a link is on the Main Catalogue page.)
