OneSearch combines most of the library's resources into a single database. Rather than search databases separately, you can do just "one search." OneSearch includes articles, books, ebooks, and more. Hint: You will get a lot of results, so use the limits on the left side to focus in on what you need. (EBSCO)
Google Scholar finds scholarly articles, books, papers, etc. Note: When off-campus, using the library's link to Google Scholar will provide more full-text resources than the simple link. Look for "Full-Text @ Cal U" to access items.
