The default for search results in OneSearch is by relevance.
When results are sorted by Relevance it means that the results that most closely match up with the keywords you used to search OneSearch are displayed first. You can also choose to sort your results by Date Newest (results from more recent publications will display first) or by Date Oldest (results from older publications will display first).
Find information about the different materials that you retrieve
Since OneSearch will retrieve records for a variety of materials included in the library's collections, you may notice journal articles, books, and eBooks included in your results list. If your result is an article, you may see the PDF icon that indicates the full-text of the article, which is available directly from your results list. If the article is not directly available, you should see the Full Text Finder icon and link. Follow this to obtain the full-text or to place an Interlibrary loan!
If your result is an eBook, you may see the option to view the book, download it, or expand the Table of Contents from the Results page.
For print books and media items (like DVDs) housed in the library, you will see the availability and the information needed to locate the item.
