OneSearch allows you to explore almost everything the library owns or subscribes to. It includes our library catalogue and content from our other databases.

Use OneSearch to find books, reports, articles, and other items. You can search all disciplines (subjects) or select one or more to focus on.

We launched OneSearch last year but we've now placed it front and centre of our homepage.

The choice is yours. You can still search only our library catalogue by selecting the Catalogue tab. You can also search individual databases by choosing them from the Databases and online resources page.

For more information and search tips, see our OneSearch help page.
