1Search combines the OSU Libraries 'library catalog," Summit and many of our online databases into one search engine. 1Search is a good starting point for your research. The 1Search interface looks a little different now but it functions very much the same way.
1Search helps you locate:
You can "scope" your search to find
The new 1Search is one part of a complete search
After you enter a search in 1Search on the OSU Libraries' home page, you will be asked to sign in.
We are encouraging you to sign in before you see your search results so you can get the full benefit of the new 1Search.
You can always log in later in the top right corner of the screen but you'll want to rerun your search to get the maximum benefit.
You'll still be able to get to all the resources available. Just like before, you will be asked to enter your ONID information at some point. That will give you access to the articles and books and services like Interlibrary Loan.
Absolutely! When you see an item that shows Request this item, that means the item is either checked out or OSU Libraries does not own it. Click on the Availability & Request tab and then click on Request.
This is the list of databases that have been activated in 1Search as of October 2014. Please note that this list is subject to change.
