OneSearch searches almost everything the library has at one time, including books, ebooks, videos, and articles.OneSearch does not currently search:
Some content from the Library Catalog (i.e., books, videos, etc.) and newspapers may not appear in OneSearch for 1-3 days. For the most recent updates, search the library catalog or the specific newspaper (e.g., Wall Street Journal) directly.
OneSearch has been designed to be similar to the internet search engines that you use (e.g., Google), so you can search it in much the same way.
