Library Now Offers “OneSearch”

The Library now offers a new search tool on the Library home page called OneSearch. By entering search terms in the OneSearch box, you can search almost all of the content available in over 200 databases as well as the Library Catalog simultaneously. Your search can include all fields, or only author, title or subject.  You can also focus your search by types of sources, for example, the Library Catalog for books and media, or Articles and Databases.  While this search tool does not replace searching specific individual databases appropriate to your topic or subject area, it facilitates discovery of sources and databases relevant to an area of research or interdisciplinary topic.  Try it out and click on the feedback link to let us know what you think.

Other users, including members of Friends of the Library, the Alumni Association and guests can continue to use the Research Commons on the first floor during regular Library hours.
