Databases and search tools


OneSearch is a discovery tool for searching most of the library collection, both printed and in electronic format. By default your search is limited to the material that is directly available, but you can also choose to broaden your search to materials that the library does not have. Such materials may instead be requested.

If you want to conduct a more thorough systematic search on a topic, if you do not want to limit your search to library material, or if you are looking for a specific type of material, it is often better to use a specialized search tool such as a bibliographic database. You can find more information in our database list.
