 Click here to go to an advanced (recommended) version of OneSearch.

 Use the drop-down menu to select which part of the record - title, subject, author - where search words will be matched


Keyword Searching:
  • Searches for words only, not concepts.
  • May be a useful strategy to start - until you know the Subject terms.

Subject Searching:

  • Uses Library of Congress Subject Headings to search for concepts.
  • Often succeeds better than keyword searching.

   The Library of Congress Subject Headings lists specific subject terms to use in OneSearch Some useful ones are:

School management and organization
School personnel management
School principals
School supervision
Teacher-administrator relationships
Education – aims and objectives
Educational accountability
