About One Search

Why use One Search?

  • a single box searches across the spectrum of library content
  • access to a variety of source types and materials
  • direct links to online content
  • filters make it easy to refine results by format, availability online, subject, etc.

Keep in Mind...

  • One Search does not include all library resources - some must be searched separately
  • in-depth research in a field is best accomplished by selecting a subject-specific database
  • a library catalog, like EZRA or OhioLINK, is better for finding books when you know the title or author
  • contact a librarian for help deciding which resource to search and which key terms to include
  • you can still use search tips like phrase searching, Boolean operators, and truncation symbols
