About OneSearch

OneSearch pulls results from the catalog and most of the library databases, retrieving both print and online resources.OneSearchDiagram 6-30


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 A-Z Databases 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 Central
