When using OneSearch you can choose to narrow your searching scope from the from the beginning using the drop-down menu, or you can search all results and use facets on the left sidebar to refine the results that are returned. Using OneSearch you can access all of these different kinds of resources from one search box. Within the search results you can narrow by full text results, peer reviewed results, see if a book is available on the shelf, along with many other possibilities.
Everything: Searches both CSU and CPP content of all types (physical and digital items) including books, media, articles, eBooks, etc.
Articles: Searches articles that are accessible online from the various databases that both the CSU and CPP subscribe to (if CPP does not have access to a specific article but another CSU does you can request the article through Document Delivery).
Books & Media (CPP): Searches the physical items that are located within the CPP library.
Books & Media (All CSU): Searches the physical items within the whole CSU (if CPP does not have an item you need you can request it to be delivered from CSU+)
Course Reserves (CPP): Searches the materials faculty have put on reserve for specific courses.
When you first enter a search phrase or word into OneSearch you will see a list of results. Sometimes this list can include a few results, sometimes it can include thousands! This depends on how specific you are with your search terminology. To the left of the search results there is a set of facets under "Tweak my results". You can use these facets to narrow down thousands of results to ones that better fit your research needs.
On the results list you will also find small clues as to what each result is, what it includes, and if you can access it online or physically. Once you click a result, the record for that item will pop up and give you even more information.
You can search for journals in the catch-all OneSearch box, or you can use the OneSearch Journal Search to find a specific journal.
