Stop Searching. Start finding. The Research Warrior tool is now live!

January 7th, 2013

What is Research Warrior?

Research Warrior brings together the most comprehensive collection of
content—including superior indexing from top subject indexes, high-end full text and the entire library collection—all from a single search box.

How is Research Warrior different from how I’m searching now?

Use Research Warrior to find books, media and articles from journals and magazines on your topic. One quick search brings together information from all across the Wayne State Libraries and the web in one simple set of search results. For example, using our library catalog now, you can search our collections, including books, media, and journal titles, but with Research Warrior, you’ll get direct links to articles. With three million library items, over five hundred databases, and a single search box, you’ll spend less time searching, and more time finding.

How do I use Research Warrior?

Go to the Library System website (, enter your search terms into the search box and let Research Warrior do the work.
