There is no way to search all the library databases at once but you can search multiple databases through some platforms.

ProQuest Central is a collection of 11 databases that are searched simultaneously. 

EBSCOhost contains many library databases, which can be searched together.

  1. From the library home page, click Databases & Indexes
  2. Select E, then scroll down to EBSCOhost Databases 
  3. Select all or the databases you want to search.

You can also select multiple databases from within any single EBSCOhost database. Next to the name of the database, there is an option to choose databases.
