What is Omni?
Omni is the library search tool used to find items in Queen's Libraries and our partner libraries, as well to access articles and other electronic resources.
When should I search Omni?
When should I search specific databases?
Omni includes content from the various research databases to which QUL subscribes but not everything is included. If you are looking for information on a very specific topic, or a topic that is subject specific, it is recommended that you search databases that specialize in that subject area for more thorough results.
Omni is one part of a complete search. To search beyond the holding of QUL and the OMNI Libraries, you can use WorldCat.
Detailed information about how to search Omni is available in the Omni Search Tips guide.
