CLICsearch is not Google, but it does include most (but not all) of the Hamline Library's resources.
There is no need to include full sentences in your search. Upper/lower case is irrelevent. Remember that the system is not reasoning, but only finding the series of characters you typed. Therefore, skip extraneous words, e.g.
Search: st paul metro transit
Metro Transit in city of St. Paul
e.g. "colonial peru"

Use the E-MAIL button to send citation information, including the call number for books:
Dissertations and Theses
Each item listed on the results page includes a citation for that item and links to its full-text or online version (if available) or a catalog record indicating at which CLIC library that item can be found and requested.
CLICsearch doesn't cover some of our subscription databases --primarily statistical data or unique material.
All of our subscription databases can be accessed and searched directly through our Databases page.

Cooperating Libraries In Consortium (CLIC) allows easy and quick lending between six university libraries in the Twin Cities area. Rather than being limited to the holdings at Bush Memorial Library, students, faculty and staff have access to over 2 plus million books that can be freely requested and delivered within a day or so. So when you search the Bush Library at Hamline, you are actually searching all of CLIC member libraries from: Bethel University, Concordia University - St. Paul, St. Catherine University, University of Northwestern - St. Paul, and the University of St. Thomas.
