Now you can do one search in all selected databases.

The results list can be filtered by the specific database if needed, see Database under the Refine Results options on the left side at the very bottom.

Search TIP: each database has its own subject headings which can differ significantly. When searching try a variety of keywords. A keyword that works well in one database may not in another.
