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.
When you choose the Articles scope, you are searching across many but not all of our online databases.
The default is to retrieve those journal articles that are available full text. You can expand your search by checking the "Include resources that require additional delivery time." This will include citation to articles to which we do not have full text online access but we can get for you from another library via Interlibrary Loan.
Yes, the databases are all still there for you to search. The new 1Search is one part of a complete search.
1Search does not include all the content from specialized databases to which OSU subscribes. For discipline-specific searching, use the OSU Libraries' Research Databases, also linked from the Library Homepage under Find it, or check the Research Guides.
The article content for 1Search comes from a variety of sources such as publishers or databases. Sometimes the same article will be listed in multiple sources and you will see duplicate records in 1Search. These may be listed individual or grouped under the View all Versions tab. There is no difference in the version other than the original source (publisher or database).
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.
