Search Scopes in OneSearch

The default "scope" in OneSearch is EVERYTHING.  However, once in OneSearch you can change the search scope in the drop-down menu to better fit what you're looking for.

  • Everything (Books & Articles) - finds the majority of the library's print and online resources
  • Books & More - finds print books, online books, physical media (DVDs, audiobooks, etc.), and streaming videos
  • Articles & More - finds journal, newspaper, and magazine articles
  • Textbooks - finds current course textbooks available for short term checkouts from the library
  • All Minn. State Libraries - finds items available from other Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.  If you are signed in, you will see links to request the items from the other libraries.
