You do not need to login to search OneSearch, but in order to see and link to results, you will need to login to your Eckerd account.

Logging in allows you to view and renew your existing loans, access online databases and resources, save items to your Favorites list, request physical items from the library, and make interlibrary loan requests. We encourage you to use the same browser as the one in which you are logged into your Eckerd account for the best experience.
