Brandeis Library OneSearch

OneSearch is the Brandeis Library's main catalog and database search tool.

  • Library Catalog: Use this option to search for physical items (books, print journals, DVDs, etc.), ebooks, and streaming media owned by the library.
  • Articles & More: Use this option to search across many databases of articles in journals, newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, and dictionaries.
  • All OneSearch: Use this option to search both the Library Catalog and Articles & More.
  • Course Reserves: Use this option to search for books that have been set aside for your courses.

Find Books on a Topic

  3. Use the sidebar menu on the search results page to limit your results to books and e-books.
    Resource Type: Books & EBooks.
  4. If you want to limit your results to just e-books, click Available Online in the sidebar menu.
