No!  OneSearch is open to anyone, anywhere to search. 

However, additional functions are available when you login with your UARK username and password.  These include:

1. Place requests for library materials

If you are not signed in to OneSearch, you will see that an item is available, but not be able to request that we pull and hold it for you.

If you login with your email and password, you will see requesting options, including scan requests for chapters or articles:

3. Results from Restricted Resources
