LibraryOneSearch is a Google-like search engine that searches the majority of Wesleyan's library resources (both online and offline materials).

The most effective way to use it is to start by searching a few keywords, then narrow down your search results by using the refinements on the left-hand side of the screen. For a video guide demonstrating OneSearch, see Getting the most out of Library OneSearch.

What does it search?
Library OneSearch searches a large portion (but not all) of the Wesleyan libraries' materials and subscriptions.  It searches:
