What are you searching when you search OneSearch?
OneSearch provides a single point of entry to the physical and electronic materials that the Library provides access to for your research needs. When you search OneSearch, you search our physical catalog (books, DVDs, theses, physical journals and magazines, course reserves, etc.) and our electronic holdings (e-journals and magazines, electronic reference collections, etc.). However, OneSearch is not always the best place to start if you are looking for resources in specialized databases (see next question).

What is not included in OneSearch?
OneSearch is a great starting point but it is sometimes best to use the use the native interfaces to search specialized databases and collections.
