Introducing OneSearch from Vogel Library — Vogel Library has moved to a new “discovery system” called OneSearch, which allows students and faculty to search our databases, books, videos, archives — everything — from a single, Google-like search box. In addition, the library now subscribes to a number of new databases to help in your research, including Proquest Central, an excellent starting point for finding college-appropriate, multi-disciplinary articles in magazines and journals. This replaces Academic Search Complete while still allowing students and faculty to search multiple databases across all major subject areas, including business, health and medical, language and literature, social sciences, education, science, and technology, as well as core titles in the performing and visual arts, history, religion, philosophy, and more. Try it and let the library staff know what you think!
