Because OneSearch is a single search interface that retrieves results from potentially 37 academic libraries, you may be overwhelmed by the quantity of your search results. However, if you know what item you are searching for -- such as a popular book or journal article -- please consider the following strategies:

A. Use the material type pre-search filter (such as book or article) to enhance the relevance of your results.

B. Employ phrase searching in your query by adding quotation marks to your query phrase. For example, "The Bell Jar" will retrieve results that have the specific phrase in the item record.

C. Consider using a title search limiter to retrieve results that only have the query terms in the title.
