Find Books in OneSearch and in Ebook Collections

                            You can search in OneSearch for print books, ebooks, and more on your topic.

  • Use the library website's main OneSearch search box, with "OneSearch" selected, to type in your topic. This search will bring you to OneSearch, where you can limit your search on the top or by using the filters on the left hand side of the page.
  • You can also click on Advanced Search to do a more guided OneSearch search.


Ebooks are cataloged and can be found in OneSearch, but they are also available via databases. See the links below:

Book Tips

If you find a good book, look at its catalog information closely.

Click on the book TITLE to see a detailed description. Doing this can often save you time. Check:

  • Table of Contents  - The table of contents will give you a good idea of what the book contains and what it will and will not include. This can help you decide if the source is worth pursuing.
  • Subject terms (ex. Buddhist philosophy) - If a book looks useful, you can click on one of its hyperlinked Subject terms to find other books that share the same focus.
  • Call number (ex. BQ5612 .S535 2014) - If a book is available in print format, you will see a call number in this detailed record. Clicking on the hyperlinked call number will show you what books are nearby on the physical library shelf.
  • Sometimes the Summary statement(s) can be helpful.
