What is OneSource?

     OneSource is a way to search the Hiram College Library catalog, the OhioLINK catalog, and many of the library’s databases with a single search.  OneSource employs a single search box, much like Google, to search multiple resources.  Technically, OneSource is searching the combined index of all these resources, not the resources themselves, so it is possible a researcher may miss the most recent entries in a database, particularly the Hiram College Library catalog.

     Most researchers tend to use keyword searches in OneSource since terminology does not always stay the same across disciplines.  This tends to result in a large number of “hits,” again, much like Google.  There are a variety of options for limiting your search once it has been done.
