Top 5 time-saving tips for OneSearch

Thanks to everyone who came along the the first session of Research Bites today, or listened in to the live stream.

I introduced some of the less obvious, but very useful features of OneSearch, the Library’s catalogue and discovery tool.

The top tips were:

  1. Log in to OneSearch to get access to your account, our subscribed resources and personalised features
  2. Use the right tab to search books and more, articles and more or everything together
  3. Refine your results such as by type of document or date
  4. Use the e-shelf to save and organise items you’ve found
  5. Save your search and even set up email alerts

Any questions about OneSearch, please contact the Library.

The recording of the session is already available via Panopto.
