PACS 401: Pacific Islands Studies Capstone: "OneSearch"

A library research guide for the Spring 2014 Pacs 401 course

Research note

Just a reminder, despite its name, "OneSearch" does not search for everything that is available to you as library researchers. What it does search for: books (including print books held in the library and electronic books that you can access digitally); DVD’s, musical recordings; dissertations and theses; maps, and hard copies of journals and newspapers; many (but not all) academic journal articles; some (but not all) newspaper articles. A useful strategy for searching within OneSearch is to start broadly with a keyword search -- for instance, "Pacific islanders well-being" and then narrow the results down using the "filters" that appear on the left side of the screen. (For instance, filtering to view only dissertations and theses).
