OneSearch is a merged database of millions of records from many different publishers and sources.  It includes records for both physical (print) and online:

  • books
  • articles
  • journals
  • manuscript collections
  • newspapers
  • theses and dissertations
  • audio and video
  • conference proceedings
  • maps
  • data sets
  • reference encyclopedias and dictionaries
  • digitized collections
  • student and faculty works

However, OneSearch does not include all the specialized content to be found in all our subject databases.  Check our recommended databases by subject list to find

  • newspaper articles from databases such as America's News
  • company, marketing, and other business data from resources such as Mintel, Mergent, Standard and Poor’s, and IBISWorld
  • data sets and statistics from specialized services such as Statista or Data Planet
  • full manuscript finding aids (indexes) in ArchivesSpace


In addition, you may wish to use subject databases for greater flexibility and precision with functions such as

  • chemical structure searching in SciFinder or Reaxys
  • demographic categories such as age group, ethnicity, or gender in resources such as PsycINFO, MEDLINE, and ERIC
  • methodological approaches such as qualitative analysis or case study.
