Finding Materials Using OneSearch

The library OneSearch box found on the library homepage at esearch.sc4.edu will help you find a wide variety of library resources. It searches almost all of the 200+ library databases at once. You can use it to find peer reviewed journal articles, magazine and newspaper articles, streaming videos, ebooks, print books, audio recordings ...

Below is a video showing how to narrow your OneSearch search results to scholarly and peer reviewed materials, ebooks, and audiovisual items. The next tabs are individual videos and screen shots on narrowing your search results.
