Omnivore is a search engine for library resources.
Go to the Omnivore Help Guide
With one search box, it searches across the CIA Library's book and ebook collections, article databases, media and more.
Omnivore uses WorldCat Discovery from OCLC (a global library cooperative.)
Plus, you can expand your search beyond the CIA Library and find information about books and other materials in libraries worldwide.
Searching is a process, you will try one search, evaluate your results, modify your strategy and try again.
