What is OneSearch
OneSearch is a new search tool that allows simultaneous searching of books, journal and newspapers articles, media and other resources in one simple interface.
The OneSearch tab searches everything in the UH System in one step: books, articles, videos, maps, government documents, and local databases.
The Books tab searches only the UH Voyager Catalog, which includes books, e-books, video titles, maps and government documents.
The Articles tab searches the Kauai CC subscription (all EBSCO databases, Congressional Researcher, Science Direct) and open access databases.
The Advanced Search screen offers drop down boxes to limit searches by author, title, subject, material type and publication year.
