Fast and easy to use.
Limits to peer-reviewed and scholarly journals with the check of a box.
When you don't know where to start, search OneSearch.
You can find all types of resources in this one single search.
How does it work?
OneSearch retrieves citations from most, but not all, of the :Library’s resources; each citation includes a link to either the online version of the full-text or a link to where a paper (or microfilm) version is located within the Library.
It works by indexing content from thousands of publishers. Then it retrieves results from publishers with whom we have agreements. OneSearch doesn't index content from all publishers, nor do we have agreements with all publishers. So in many cases you'll still want to use subject-specific databases to find more info.
Results come back according to relevance. If your keywords show up in the title of a book or article, that gets the highest ranking. Words in abstracts and meta-data come next. Finally, if your words appear anywhere in the full-text, you'll get a result.
