2. There is also a “Books and More” link under Quick Links.
3. If you are already engaged in OneSearch, you can choose Books, Audio, or Video from the Item Type dropdown box beneath the search box.
How do I limit my search in OneSearch to a particular format like films or sound recordings?
Go to Advanced Search, and use the Material Type pull-down.
How do I refine my search in OneSearch?
Start with a keyword search and when you have found one or two relevant books, examine their subjects headings to help guide further searching,
After completing a search, use the options on the left-side to filter the results. You can refine by a number of options, such as Full Text Online, Available in Library, Author/Creator, Subject/Topic, Resource Type, and more.
Clicking on the title of a book from the list of results displays the details about the title, it location, its availability, the subject headings assigned to it, and often its contents.
You also have options to email, save to a citation database format, or add to a list of saved titles in in your account (you'll have to sign in to do this). Simply click on the available links.
