Fondren Library has a new search and discovery tool called OneSearch.  It is available at

It keeps getting better and better! It includes 50 of our most popular databases, including MathSciNet, Scopus, Web of Science, and JSTOR. It also includes the library catalog. So, what this means is, that you can do a search in the box, and the results returned will include journal articles from those databases, as well as, books that Fondren library owns. It also has some enhanced features, such as the ability to save and share lists of books, write and publish your own reviews of books. In addition, it does search GoogleBooks, and if we own a book, the results from GoogleBooks will give some access, either partial or full-text, depending on what the publisher has allowed. We want to know what you think about it! Give feedback at: Also, see a guide at:
