One Search FAQ

Q: What is One Search?

A: One Search, located on the Library homepage, is the Library's discovery tool. It searches the Library's collection of print books, ebooks, and a selection of articles from several databases.



Q: How do I find one type of source (books, journal articles, newspapers, etc)?

A: You can limit your results on the left side of the page using the "Source Types" box.

Q: Can I do all my research in One Search?

A: One Search only covers a selection of the Library's databases, and it favors our EBSCO Host databases. One Search is often a good place to start your research, but you should also explore the Library's databases individually to appreciate the breadth of information we may available on your topic. 

Q: Does One Search provide citations? 

A: Yes. Check out our Citing Sources Guide to learn about grabbing citations from One Search (and other EBSCO Host databases).
