OneSearch is helpful if you don’t know where to start your research, but be aware it is a fast search rather than a precise search.
When to use OneSearch
- when you are looking for everything on a specific topic regardless of material type
- you are just starting your research
However, if you
- want specialized information sources within a discipline or academic field, see our Databases A to Z for a listing of our specialized databases, or browse through our online journals
- are an undergraduate and want a few articles on a topic for a research paper, you might use a general multi-disciplinary database such as Academic Search Complete or ProQuest Research Central
