Time:             2:30 - 3:00 pm

The OneSearch is the search platform that enables most of the library’s electronic and print resources to be discovered by using a single search. It streamlines the research process and users no longer need to search for books on the library catalogue and articles in individual databases. OneSearch search results include books, e-books, journal articles, dissertations, audio-visual materials, etc.

The workshops will cover:

  • Limit search results by type of resources, location, date, language, subject, source, etc.
  • Save search alerts
  • View search history
  • Export records, etc.
