We use a powerful discovery tool to find and display the most relevant content available based on your search.

Intellus Learning allows our campus partners to leverage a single search tool to discover and utilize digital resources across various content repositories.

Content in each institutions's digital library is sourced from:
  • Institutions: Instructor-created content from your institution
  • Libraries: Third-party resources from your institution’s library, such as EBSCO, ProQuest, and JSTOR
  • Open Educational Resources: OER repositories, such as OER Commons, OpenStax, and TED Talk Open-Source
  • Commercial: Publisher content licensed by the institution, such as Macmillan Learning, Pearson Education, and Cengage
This results in a digital library comprised of millions of resources from dozens of different sources and in an array of formats. Information such as discipline, subject, type, source, and publication date is collected for each resource, which is then used to help refine search results to meet the needs of each course.

Content is added to the platform on a daily basis, with indexes being refreshed two times per week. Contact support@intelluslearning.com if you would like to request a refresh of your institution’s platform.
