OneSearch is a "discovery service" from EBSCO that allows you to search most of the library's resources in "one search"! Hint: You will get a lot of results, so use the limits on the left side to focus in on what you need. (EBSCO)
Search the full-text of millions of books. Use as a "discovery" tool to find books on your topic. Books in the public domain (generally, pre-1923) are available full-text. Newer books offer limited viewing--from many pages to nothing.Note: This is just for books (and some magazines). To find scholarly articles, use Google Scholar.
