Why use OneSearch?

OneSearch is a discovery tool that searches across library holdings, without having to use different search interfaces.

With one easy, Google-like search, you can find a wide variety of library holdings. Filters let you easily narrow your search by format, date ranges, subjects, and more.

What does OneSearch search?

OneSearch searches over 100 million books, ebooks, scholarly articles, audiovisual resources, images, and more. It includes:

  • the library catalog
  • articles from online journals
  • streaming audio and video content
  • local digital collections (images, videos, documents)
  • digital repositories from universities, museums, and open-access archives around the world

Keep in mind ...

OneSearch searches most but not all library holdings. Some database content may not be included.

In-depth or comprehensive research is better done in subject specific databases. 

The Classic Catalog is still available. If you're searching for a particular title or works by a particular author, the Classic Catalog may be your best search option.
