Welcome to OneSearch

The library is pleased to announce the release of OneSearch, a new and improved interface for searching library resources. OneSearch allows you to search across all of the library's resources, including articles, books, media, special collections, and more. And with CSU+, coming July 10, you'll be able to search the resources of all of the California State University libraries and request materials to be delivered here to the Sonoma State University Library. 

OneSearch makes it easy to search across databases, ebook collections, the library's print books and media, and our digital and physical special collections. OneSearch includes results from databases like JSTOR, Academic Search Complete, Education Research Complete, Web of Science, and more. It's easy to filter your results so you see only the things you want, whether you're looking for a DVD or a peer-reviewed article. If we don't have what you're looking for, you can request it from another library right from OneSearch, without having to repeat your search in another system.

And OneSearch has tons of great features that will help you discover the most relevant things for your research, including an article recommender and a citation trail tool. When you find what you want, you can save it to your account, email it to yourself, or send it to a citation management tool easily. Save your favorite searches and get email notifications when we add new things to our collection that match your search.

You can view your library account from OneSearch by looking for the Guest link in the top right corner or the yellow bar with a Sign In Link. Signing in will let you view full search results (some publishers limit searching to verified users), renew your checked out materials, and create and view saved citations and searches.
