Search Library Resources

What is OneSearch?

OneSearch is our discovery tool. It provides a single interface to search most of the Library’s electronic and print collections: books, articles, and more. In addition, One Search:

  • Provides users with a seamless search experience
  • Uses the EBSCOhost search platform and offers familiar EBSCOhost features
  • Searches all EBSCOhost databases, JSTOR and several other journal collections
  • Includes many but not all of the Library’s electronic books
  • Searches the Library’s catalog, including CDs & DVDs

Please Note:

  • One Search does not search all of the Library’s resources.
  • Not everything in One Search is full text.
  • For any Library catalog item, you can access its local catalog record to find out more by clicking the “Check Library Catalog” link.
  • Refer to the Desk with any questions about your search. We’d be pleased to assist you.
