Rolfing Library OneSearch: Home

Welcome to OneSearch!

undefinedWhat is OneSearch?

OneSearch is Rolfing's new discovery tool -- it allows you to search for books and e-books, videos, articles, journals, digital media, and more. Although it also searches articles, you will still want to search in the EbscoHost databases, such as Atla, for additional articles.

What can I do in OneSearch?

OneSearch allows you to do more than just search for materials. Once you sign in, you can:

  • View and renew your loans
  • Access your previous searches
  • Save and set up notifications on searches you've made
  • Save items to your "favorites" list
  • Access course reserve lists
  • Check to see if items are available
  • Do a "virtual browse" of items on the shelf beside the one(s) you're looking up
  • See the full results list, including electronic resources immediately available
  • Request materials from WorldShare and other I-Share libraries

How do I get started?

  • Go the our OneSearch page
  • At the top right corner, click "Sign In." If you are a TIU student, faculty, or staff select "TIU Users."
  • Your login is your TIU username and password, which you use for TIU email, myTIU, and Moodle. Be sure not to include @tiu.edu. See more help with logging in.
  • After that, you will be redirected back to the OneSearch page, where you can search - 
    • TIU Library Catalog - search for books and other resources we have in our collection. 
    • IShare Libraries - search the books available to request from other IShare schools in Illinois
    • Articles - search articles that we have available and will also allow you to request scans through WorldShare. For a more in-depth article search, you can go to our database search
    • Course Reserves - search resources that professors have put on reserve for a course
    • WorldCat - search libraries around the world for books
    • Almost everything - search WorldCat and other databases for resources that you can then request through WorldShare.

Frequently-Asked Questions

Why doesn't my login work?

Your login is your TIU username and password, which you use for TIU email, myTIU, and Moodle. Be sure you don't include @tiu.edu. It should just be the first part, such as zjsmith

See more help with logging in. If you're still having problems contact libref@tiu.edu

 

How do I access journals and databases?

You can search for articles and journals within OneSearch. However, you can still search individual subject databases as well, such as Atla, PsycInfo, or ERIC. Just go to the "Databases" link on the library homepage below the search box.
