Online resources and virtual library services are available through this website.

OneSearch

OneSearch is a tool for discovering the resources in the University Libraries collections. The simple search box allows researchers to discover credible and reliable library content in one simple search and see results in a relevancy-ranked list. Researchers can access full-text content when available, locate items in the libraries' collections, or request items through interlibrary loan if necessary.

For more information on this new discovery tool, take a look at the OneSearch subject guide.

As always, though, using only one source for all your information- even a meta-search tool such as this- can leave your knowledge of research topics lacking. Again, there is no quick and easy road to accurate and authoritative research. Real work is involved. Search results will overlap between sources but they will NOT be the same.

Databases

For online databases and index services go to the University Libraries home page, click on the Databases link, then use the pull down menu near the top of the page to select the Science option.  This will bring up a list science-related databases allowing a more concise search of the literature.

 

Tip: If you already have an article in mind and want to find a fulltext version of it, do a search for the journal title in OneSearch.  If the Libraries subscribes to the journal electronically, links to the online journal will be provided in the record.
