  • OneSearch is a single search option. Resources currently included in a OneSearch search are: the Library's catalogue (includes books, musical scores, audio recordings, etc.), all EBSCOhost products, all of the full text journals licensed from Elsevier/ScienceDirect, JSTOR, Sage, Wiley, Springer, ACS, IOP, BioOne, and ProjectMuse, many of the specialty historical full text databases (Alexander Street Press), and millions of index-only article and book records from various sources. Some Proquest databases (CBCA, ASFA, PAIS, Philosopher's Index) and Biosis are included but as optional add-ins, using check boxes on the far right of the search results screen.
  • If you don't find what you are looking for in OneSearch, then try searching for the item in a specific database or just the library catalogue, outside of OneSearch. (From the Library's homepage, click on either Catalogue or Article Databses towards the top of the page.)
