Brandeis Library Updates OneSearch Tool for More Responsive Catalog & Electronic Resource Searches

January 5th, 2018 · No Comments

The Brandeis Library has introduced a new user interface for OneSearch, our catalog and electronic resources search tool.

With responsive design for desktop and mobile devices, the new OneSearch interface uses the latest web technologies to retrieve results from across the library catalog and most of our databases.

OneSearch allows users to find millions of resources at once without having to search individual locations. If users are at the beginning of their research process they can use OneSearch to get an overview of a topic, and if the title or author of a specific book is already known they can use OneSearch to find it quickly.

From the drop-down menu, users have the option to conduct four different types of searches:

  • Library Catalog: Use this option to search for physical items (books, print journals, DVDs, etc.), ebooks, and streaming media owned by the library.
  • Articles & More: Use this option to search across many databases of articles in journals, newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, and dictionaries.
  • All OneSearch: Use this option to search both the Library Catalog and Articles & More.
  • Course Reserves: Use this option to search for books and videos that have been set aside for your courses.

Users sign in to OneSearch using their Brandeis username and passphrase. Once in their account, users will see all the items they have saved while using OneSearch. Users also can save specific searches and alerts, as well as view loans, requests, fines and fees.
