What's OneSearch?

OneSearch is the Erickson Library's new catalog. It provides simple, one-stop searching of the library's physical and electronic holdings. From this one search box you can see what books, including ebooks we own and get immediate access to millions of full-text journal, magazine and newspaper articles. 

You can manage your library account from OneSearch. We recommend you LOG IN FIRST with your StarID and password to view and renew items, check due dates, save favorites and see otherwise invisible database articles.
