This Fall 2022 Semester, the library is offering a new online OneSearch Library Catalog Tutorial. The tutorial is available in our library catalog, in many of our library research guides, and on our library website.
Upon completion of the OneSearch Library Catalog Tutorial, library patrons should be able to:
1. Find the OneSearch online library catalog.
2. Search for and locate books and e-books, videos, articles, digital media, and more in the library's collection.
3. Request items from other LACCD libraries.
At the end of the tutorial, there is a short online quiz, which provides users feedback.
Find audio and video works, blogs, podcasts, conference papers and proceedings, dissertations and theses, historical papers, reports, scholarly journals and more in the library’s subscription databases:
Develop a search strategy by combining keywords for your topic with AND (limits results to the specific angle from which you're approaching your subject), OR (broadens your search with synonyms to capture more articles) or NOT (excludes irrelevant results), and using quotes around multiple word phrases. Examples:
"Henry V" AND Shakespeare
("Walter Ralegh" OR "Walter Raleigh")
"Paradise Lost" NOT (movie OR film)
