OneSearch Updates

OneSearch: What's New

We recently updated OneSearch, AU Library's comprehensive discovery search tool, to enhance initial search results and simplify off-campus use. Here's an overview of what you can expect.

  • Off-campus Search:  To provide a more seamless search experience, when working off-campus you will be immediately directed to the authentication login screen after clicking search. Enter your AU username and password, the same information used to access Blackboard and your AU email, to continue your research.
  • Preset Search Limiters: AU Library Collections and Full Text Online are preset at the start of each search to help immediately focus your research results.
  • Using Search Limiters: Instead of using the preset limiters, choose to use any or all of the search limiters to support your initial research purpose. Click to remove or add AU Library Collections, Full Text Online, Peer Reviewed Only, or AU Library Catalog.

Library resource links to the library catalog, A to Z database listings, journal finder, Library guides, and OhioLINK remain available for use directly below the search box.

Need help with OneSearch? Ask a Librarian, AU Library's chat service, is available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
