Answer

FindMore@NUSL marries the simplicity, ease of use and speed of a Google search with the quality and reliability of library databases. As of 15 May 2015, version 2 of FindMore@NUSL is soft-launched.

Whether you need a research article, a dissertation, or a medical case study or just a ordinary print book, FindMore@NUSL can usually find it without requiring you to decide in advance which database or source to search in. 

Though not 100% comprehensive, this is to-date the largest single one search of items you can access as a staff or student of NUS.
