One Search: About One Search

Articles, books, videos—online & in the library—all in one search! Use this guide as a way to learn about One Search and how best to use it.

What is One Search?

Have you ever wished that you could find library resources in one place?

Well, now you can. OneSearch, our federated search tool, is one stop shopping for finding books, ebooks, journals, articles, videos, and more.

Of course, the library's resources are still available for you to search directly.


What resources are included in One Search?

All of the Library's resources in the Catalog (books, ebooks, videos, websites), plus all of our Journals and Databases, including open source Databases. Click here for a list of our Databases.
