What is OneSearch?

OneSearch is a simple and fast search engine that simultaneously searches for books, articles, and more.

Results may include content from EUREKA, our journals, government documents, theses, media, digital collections, and other collections.


Why should I try OneSearch?

OneSearch can:

  • Save time.
  • Be a good starting point for a new-to-you subject.
  • Find content that’s not in EUREKA or our databases.
  • Save or email your results from your e-shelf.

How do I use OneSearch?

Type one or more words you are looking for and click the Search button.

Use AND if you want all the words included in your results. Use parentheses to keep phrases together.
Use OR or NOT if you don’t want all the words included in your results.

For example: violence AND (television OR TV)


Can I save my results?

As you view your results, send those you want to save to the e-shelf by clicking on the small star in the record.

To email or print your collected saved results, click on the star e-shelf on the upper right of the webpage.

You can also set up your account with your SacLink login to keep your searches and results. Your search will disappear unless you log in.



How do I revise a search?

On the left side of the results screen, find categories or facets to apply to the results to narrow them.

For example, you may be able to limit to resource type, author, creation date, topic, additional search topics, etc.

You can also change your initial search terms in the search box.
