  • Cross-Database Search to Be Decommissioned


    The Library has been running a pilot of UCSF Cross-Database Search, a tool that retrieves results from many journals and databases simultaneously. This two-year pilot will come to an end on December 31, and the service will not be continued at this point in time due to cost and low usage.

    If you've used Cross-Database Search and would like to provide feedback, or you would like to be notified if we offer a similar product in the future, please contact us.
