About discover.HSLS

The discover.HSLS feature allows you to access HSLS and Pitt resources quickly via a keyword search. Each tab searches a different group of resources. Topic Clusters provides an in-depth, AI algorithmic assessment to find similar and complementary topics.

The Pitt Resources tab offers a quick search of PITTCat, the online catalog. Use it to retrieve the titles of books, journals, electronic resources, and more from any Pitt library. Online resources are listed first, in a highlighted box at the top of the results list, with links to the full text. Other entries link to the PITTCat record to provide additional information.

The E-Book Full Text tab searches the content of over 1,000 electronic books in the HSLS collection. Enter a keyword search, and relevant chapters or sections of e-books are listed. The links connect to the full text. E-Book Full Text search includes E-book packages such as Books@Ovid, ClinicalKey, McGraw Hill, R2 Library, and Thieme Medical.
