What is OneSearch?

  • OneSearch is a search engine that searches many, but not all, of our library databases.  Databases that are searched by OneSearch include Academic OneFile, Academic Search Complete, BioOne, Credo Reference, Duke University Press Journals Online, JSTOR, Project Muse, Social Science Premium Collection and more.  However, it may have uneven coverage for some of these databases.  Nonetheless, it can be a good place to start your research - or a way to research an obscure topic when you aren't too sure where to begin.  OneSearch also searches Thorncat, our online catalog.  Please be mindful that there may be as much as a 4 month lag in books appearing in OneSarch after they are entered in Thorncat.
  • If you find an item you want in OneSearch that isn't available in full text, please be sure to contact interlibrary loan at and they will try to get it for you
