What Is LibraryOneSearch?
Library OneSearch uses one search box to search across many of the library's resources, including everything from the library catalog and licensed databases to free resources on the Internet (e.g., PubMed). Your list of results will have materials ranked by relevance regardless of  format. Check out the list of key databases included and read information on full content availability. 
Not every database that the OU libraries subscribe to will be included in Library OneSearch. If you are doing in-depth research in your discipline or cited reference searching, please use specialty databases to access native search interfaces and to conduct focused searches. Visit the list of databases by subject.
