Search portals bundle information resources from one or more specialist areas. In general, they can be used to query several search tools at the same time, such as search engines and databases, via a single search query.
Content: The discovery system DISCO of Trier University of Applied Sciences is a multidisciplinary search portal that allows you to search via several scientific search tools simultaneously. Among other things, the following are queried during a search:
- the two logical library catalogues of Trier University of Applied Sciences
- scientific search engines (BASE, OpenAIRE Explore)
- some licensed databases of Trier University (Business Source Premier, DACH Information, SpringerLink, wiso)
- databases with partly free content such as IEEE Xplore and MEDLINE
- metasearch tools such as DOAJ.
You can use the following functions and options, among others:
- filters to limit your hit list (e.g. publication period, language, etc.)
- operators to formulate your search queries (AND, OR, NOT, "...", Nx, * etc.)
- SmartText search to increase your search results (you can enter whole text sections for the search)
- print and save hits or metadata
- citation help and export to literature management programmes
- personal user account with administration options and search alarm.
