Library OneSearch uses one search box to search across many of the library's resources, including everything from the catalog and from many library databases. Your list of results will have materials ranked by relevance regardless of their format.
Library OneSearch is based on agreements with many scholarly content publishers to allow article-level indexing of the full-text of these articles. Many existing databases provide this service through individual interfaces (EBSCO, JSTOR, etc.) but this tool pulls them together to allow full-text searching in one search box.
When using RefWorks and Library OneSearch from a remote location, make sure to log in by clicking the dark bar at the top of the Library OneSearch page before going into RefWorks.
Library OneSearch promotes discovery of relevant and timely resources. It includes many of our databases and journal level articles, as well as our catalog records (books, journal titles, etc.) and works in the public domain through HathiTrust, among others. However, Library OneSearch does not include everything. Click here to review content and coverage details.
Using the "Add Results Beyond Your Library Collection" feature, you may add items not available from Kresge Library. OU students, faculty and staff may use our Interlibrary Loan service to obtain these items.
Not every database that we subscribe to will be included in Library OneSearch. If you are doing in-depth research in your discipline or cited reference searching, please use multiple databases to get exposure to more publications. Visit our list of databases by subject.
