OneSearch searches over 100 million books, ebooks, scholarly articles, audiovisual resources, images, and more. It includes:
OneSearch may provide access to most of the databases and journals that you already use. Some databases and journals provide access to full text, others only list citation information. Use the table below to find some of the major publishers and databases indexed in OneSearch.
This list is not exhaustive and may not include open access resources. Please contact Discovery Services for more information if you do not see a resource listed below.
*NOTE: Entries below marked with an asterisk (*) are only partially indexed; this will be at least 75% coverage, usually less than 90%. For more about the publishers and databases that are marked with an asterisk, please see "More on Content".
OneSearch is based on a unified index, a ProQuest/ExLibris product called Summon, which uses direct links from publishers or UNR Libraries' link resolver to connect to fully digitized article content. This content is provided by thousands of publishers working directly with ExLibris. The Library works with ExLibris to make sure that all of our subscribed content in the unified index is accessible.
Content in OneSearch is dependent not on database packages but on individual titles found in journals published by the publishers with whom ProQuest partners. Databases or collections marked with an asterisk above have only partial coverage; this will most often be because the database provider is not working directly with ProQuest/ExLibris to share information about its content.
So, for example, Academic Search Premier is only around 75% covered. EBSCO does not currently share its metadata with ProQuest, but, since ProQuest is getting information directly from many of the publishers included in Academic Search Premier, most--but not all--of the Academic Search Premier content is represented in OneSearch.
This search feature will include brief citation records for articles from journals and online resources and databases to which UNR Library doesn’t subscribe (as well as digital collections and repositories from other institutions). In those cases, the full-text is not available. In some cases there is not a direct match between what Summon thinks are UNR’s electronic holdings vs. actual holdings. As such, there have been plenty of reported incidents thus far of UNR subscription-based e-content (citations, abstracts, etc.) turning up in the “add results beyond library collection” mode. So at times this feature can be a little more comprehensive despite the unwieldy number of results.
Because Summon does not cover 100% of UNR’s electronic holdings it is not a replacement for searching native databases. But, OneSearch makes a great starting point for research or can be used to expand your research beyond a familiar core group of databases.
