Last summer, the Library launched a new tool called OneSearch for finding books, journal and newspaper articles, encyclopedias, images and media, primary sources and databases. This summer, we’ve upgraded OneSearch to make it easier than ever to find what you’re looking for.
The new OneSearch, accessible using the “All” tab in the Library’s search box, searches resources at Georgetown and all of the Washington Research Library Consortium members and displays your results in an easier-to-use interface. The new screen includes a short description of your search topic, related search terms, more intuitive search filters and clearer information on where resources are located. Hover over an item and a description will pop up with more details.
Not seeing what you’re looking for? Simply check the box at the top labeled “Add results beyond Georgetown & Consortium collections” to find items available through InterLibrary Loan.
As always, the best way to use the Library’s search tools is to meet with a librarian, who can give you tips on how to find exactly what you’re looking for—or find out what you’re looking for! You can schedule a consultation with one of our librarians anytime on our website, or stop by the Reference Desk. And if you’re not on campus, our experts are available by clicking on the “Chat Online” button in the top right corner of OneSearch!
