OneSearch is the Brandeis Library's main catalog and database search tool.
The following search strategies can be used in our library catalog, Library OneSearch and in our library databases.
AND, OR, NOT:
Phrase Searching: Use quotation marks (" ") around your search terms to search for them as a phrase. For example, the search "Trans Studies" will return results for that exact phrase.
Truncation (*): The asterisk * will search for all variant endings of a word root. For example, feminis* will returns results for feminist, feminists, feminism, etc.
Grouping Keywords: Use parentheses ( ) around your search terms to group them together. For example, the search ("drag balls" OR "ballroom culture") AND "new york" will search for resources that mention either drag balls or ballroom culture and new york.
