CrossSearch allows you to search databases simultaneously from within OxLIP+ using the OxLIP+ search interface. Unlike Find database and Find e-Journal, CrossSearch allows you to search by entering subject keywords and author names directly into OxLIP+.
The CrossSearch facility is currently available for about 200 of the titles on OxLIP+. It offers basic searching and is a useful way of quickly retrieving a sample of articles on your topic. However, for more in depth research you are advised to connect to each database separately. This will give you greater control over your search terms and a more comprehensive set of results.

The icon indicates that full text is definitely available online. However, if it not displayed it is still worth clicking . "Find it @ Oxford" will attempt to connect you to the full text article by querying "Find e-Journal" on your behalf.
You can save items from CrossSearch to the "My Articles" section of "My Research" using the icon.
It is also possible to save your search (ie the keywords you entered and the databases that you searched across) so that you can re-run the search at a later date or set up an email alert. See "My Research" for more information.
