Having a hard time finding resources for your paper? Try OneSearch!


onesOneSearch is the library’s main search engine that you can use to find articles in magazines, newspapers, and journals, along with books and other library materials.

From the library’s homepage simply type in some key words that represent your topic.  Two to three terms is about right.  Less, and your results are too scattered, more and you might not get enough relevant sources [click image to enlarge].

When you get some results, the left hand side of the screen gives you lots of options to restrict your search further.  You can click on peer review publications if your faculty member said you can only use scholarly resources, or you can pick a specific type of resource [click image to go to search].

onesearch results edited

All your results are items we own electronically, or if books, electronic and print items in our library.  By hovering over the title you get an abstract of the item (if available), and if you click on the title you get access to the full text [click image to go to search].
