Hosted on Teams (Registration Required)

Join library staff to learn about the new "OneSearch" discovery tool in the library's online catalog. OneSearch allows students to search a majority of the library's electronic resources in one place, similar to a Google search. 

Students will learn how to:
  • search the library catalog for articles, videos, books, and more!
  • place an interlibrary loan request
  • use the top menu to access other library services and manage their account
