DragonQuest Tutorial

Tutorial for searching DragonQuest, the library's online catalog and Discovery Service

About this Guide

DragonQuest is the library’s electronic catalog. It combines print and online material from the Tiffin University campus, OhioLINK libraries throughout the state, and various individual resource licenses. DragonQuest can be found in the library’s A to Z list of databases and in the “Find Library Resources” block located on the library’s web site. It’s important to note that DragonQuest does not include every resource license available through our university library. The Using the A to Z List of Databases section of this tutorial can help you access databases like Nexis Uni and the OhioLINK Electronic Journal Center (EJC), which may not be fully integrated into DragonQuest.

This guide will walk you through the many aspects of DragonQuest so that you can get the most from your library search experience.

  • Find Library Resources
    Provides a description of the Find Library Resources box where DragonQuest is located, as well as sign-in instructions for off-campus access.

  • Advanced Searching in DragonQuest
