What is OneSearch?
OneSearch is a "discovery tool" which searches multiple databases at the same time to help you find books, articles, music, and more. A default search in OneSearch searches content in Worldcat, Academic Search Complete, and ProQuest Research Library.
Here's an image of the search results screen. In the example below, a search for Twitter pulls up 280,560 results. Use the panel on the left-hand side to filter results by format, author, year, language, topic, and more. You can also narrow results down by adding additional search terms in Advanced Search.
One filter is labeled Search in these Libraries. The default setting searches Libraries Worldwide, meaning search results will include content that is held by the duPont-Ball Library as well as content that we do not have. If you'd only like to see content that the library has, change the setting to Stetson University.
Many items include a description underneath the title. Click on Show More to view the full description without leaving the search results page.
Here's an image of the Advanced Search screen, and some tips for using it.
