Answer

 

What happened to OneSearch?

 

The William H. Hannon library has replaced our old OneSearch tool with a new system that we are calling OneSearch+! It has a ton of new features that we think LMU students, faculty and staff will love! 

 

What is OneSearch+?

 

OneSearch+ is a single search box that allows researchers to look for books, articles, primary and secondary resources and relevant collections at the same time. It does this by accessing an index of a majority (but not all of) the library's collections and holdings. 

 

Can I still access individual databases separately or just search the library catalog?

 

Yes!  OneSearch+ is meant to be another way for researchers to discover our vast resources. You can still access individual databases via our Database page and access LINUS our library catalog

 

Can I use OneSearch+ off campus? Who has access to OneSearch+?

 

If you are off campus, you can still access OneSearch+ but you will have to login using your MyLMU account.

 

Currently only LMU students, faculty and staff have full access to OneSearch+ off campus. Alumni, Loyola Law School students and visitors must be on campus to access OneSearch+.

 

I need help using OneSearch+! 

 

If you need more help using OneSearch+, there is a variety of ways to contact a librarian, both in person and virtually.  We have a LibGuide that has step by step instructions for OneSearch+ here.  To contact a librarian directly, please check out our Get Help website. 

 

Is there a way to access OneSearch+ with my mobile device?

 

 Yes!  OneSearch+ will automatically detect and configure to most mobile devices, including tablets.  For more information, please click this link.

 

Which databases are included in OneSearch+?

 Not everything that the library owns is in OneSearch+.  You can access a list of everything that is and is not provided in the service in the PDFs provided below.
