What is OneSearch?


OneSearch is Lancaster's discovery tool that enables you to find both print and online resources.

You can use OneSearch to search a range of resources at the same time (the Quick Search), or a specific collection such as the Main Library Catalogue.

OneSearch also offers some features which we think you'll like:

  • a spell checker (did you mean?) and suggestions for refining search results (facets)
  • multiple refining and sorting options
  • book covers
  • the ability to add send references to bibliographic software, add tags, and add reviews

By signing in to OneSearch, you can also access your personal account, where you can save useful results in your e-shelf, renew your loans, request items that are currently out on loan, and set some personal preferences.
