Intro to OneSearch

OneSearch is the library’s search tool for locating books, ebooks, articles, videos and more.  Tips for searching OneSearch (see Research 101 for more on this):

  • Log in using your portal username and password.

  • Use the facets in the left-hand column of the screen to narrow your search.

  • Develop keywords based on the major concepts of your research topic.

  • Brainstorm alternate keywords, synonyms, broader and narrower terms

  • No sentence searching!

  • Use Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) to limit or expand your search

  • Don’t give up, research takes time!

Watch the following video to learn more about how to use OneSearch.
