This week the library is launching a new search tool called OneSearch. With OneSearch, you can go to the yellow search bar on the library website and search for books, articles, DVDs, CDs, and reports all in one place. In the past, you’d have to run separate searches to do that, but now you can use one tool to find a wide variety of sources.
OneSearch brings together:
- listings from the library catalog for all the:
- books, DVDs, and CDs we own,
- journals, magazines, and newspapers we have in print or microfilm,
- journals, magazines, and newspapers we have in e-formats;
- a huge article database that represents the majority of all the articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers that we have in full-text online.
This new search service also represents a major upgrade over our previous “Articles” search on the old search bar. You can still run articles-only searches from the search bar by using the “Articles” tab, but results now will be served up by our improved OneSearch engine.
As you search, it’s recommended that you sign in using your library ID number (found on the lower right side of your Baruch ID card) so that you can:
- see all the possible search results,
- request copies of books held at other CUNY libraries,
- renew the loan period for any books you’ve checked out.
We think you’re going to find OneSearch an efficient way to search across a wide range of sources, especially when you’re not sure where to begin your search. As you use the service, we’d love to hear to what you think of it. Please share your experiences with it by using the green “feedback” button found on every page in OneSearch.
