What is 1-Search?

1-Search is a simple and fast search engine that helps you discover and access relevant information in the Library's Collections. It is a good place to find books, scholarly journals, newspaper articles, e-books, theses and dissertations, videos, etc. through a single search box.

You will be able to limit your search results to peer-reviewed materials, filter by date, format and language, narrow by additional subject terms and save, print or email citations. From the search results, you can go directly to the full text articles, ebooks or you can see if a book is available in the Library.

1-Search is still under development. Features continue to improve, and more content will be added.
