On the library website, search using the OneSearch box at the top of the page just like any database.

Bear in mind that OneSearch only searches about 80% of our article databases due to proprietary issues.

Also, OneSearch has a generic search interface. There are some databases that have valuable and unique Advanced Search features that will help you if you access them individually. 

Lastly, because OneSearch searches so many databases at once, it can be critical that your search term combinations are very precise so that you do not end up with thousands of irrelevant results. Boolean operators can help you search precisely.
