OneSearch

Electronic resources and materials found in the library can now be searched from one location! OneSearch searches items that are in the library, digital image collections, Lux- the Lawrence University institutional repository, many of the databases to which we subscribe, as well as items that can be requested through interlibrary loan.

Why should I sign in?

When using the new search, it is highly recommended for Lawrence students, faculty, and staff to sign in. Signing in provides access to content from key databases that would otherwise be unavailable, such as Web of Science and Artstor. It also makes the option to request items through interlibrary loan available. Signing in also opens up a variety of library account options for our patrons, including the option to renew items, save searches, place hold requests, and take advantage of other options from our library catalog.

What exactly am I searching?

OneSearch

This tab searches both the contents from the library catalog and electronic resources. In the past, the only way to search most of our electronic resources was by searching them one database at a time. OneSearch allows searching for articles and other electronic resources in one large database, while also searching the library's holdings. We do recommend going back to the individual databases when doing advanced research, as more search options are available and additional articles can be found this way.

Library Catalog

By selecting this tab, you'll be searching all of the resources in the library as well as some additional electronic resources, such as ebooks and government documents. In the past, this was our LUCIA, the library catalog search. In addition to switching to a new way of searching, we recently switched to a different library catalog. This switch may change the way you search for library resources.
