Using OneSearch

The broadest search option on the library website is OneSearch. Results here will include online and print copies of books, journal articles, journals by title, book chapters, book reviews, and other materials. This is the "flea market" of search: it has everything but can be overwhelming!

  • Suggested keywords: 
    • English literature secondary study and teaching
    • If teaching "composition" or "language", substitute those for "literature" in the above search
    • If you want professional journals, substitute "periodicals" for "study and teaching"
  • After searching, limiters appear in the left-hand column. Use these to reduce the number of results.

Below is a direct search box for OneSearch. This search will lead to the same results as if you searched on the library homepage.
