(Included | Not Included)
This service, made available in conjunction with EBSCO Publishing, allows users to find scholarly articles, books, and/or other research resources via a single search engine. With UMUC Library OneSearch users can simultaneously search most of the databases to which the UMUC Library subscribes, either directly or as additional resources. (Which databases?)
- Enter your search terms and view results.
Enter your search terms from the Research Databases tab on the library home page or use the Advanced Search screen for more search options. Your results will look like this:
- Add additional resources.
Select additional resources from the right panel and click Update to add the results from those databases.
- Refine your results.
Use the left panel to narrow down your results to more specific criteria.
- Get the full text.
Click the HTML Full Text or PDF Full Text link to read the item, or click the Find It button to see if another database has the full text. (If full text is not available, the Find It menu will give you the option to get the item through DocumentExpress.)
- Or view the detailed record, read the abstract, and use the tools.
Click the item's title to view the detailed record, where you will find the abstract and some useful tools, including the ability to print, e-mail, and bookmark the item, add it to a My EBSCOhost folder, and export it to a bibliographic management tool, such as RefWorks.
You can add your search to your My EBSCOhost folder, set up an alert so that you get notified whenever new items become available, or link to your search so that you can run it again in the future.
