"Argos" is the name of IC Library's discovery tool. It's been around for a while now, first as the "Beta search" in Fall 2015 and then as the unnamed main search box on our home page in Spring 2016. We decided that we should really call it something, so we dubbed it "Argos," after the beloved dog of Ulysses.

Argos searches the IC Library catalog as well as many of our article databases, making it an effective first stop for searching in many subject areas. Tips for searching Argos are available here.
