Research Guide for Students: OneSearch & Database Searching

OneSearch is a 'discovery tool' that searches across most of the libraries databases and also the library catalog.  You can use it to find books, articles, streaming media and more.  


A quick introduction to using OneSearch (50 seconds, no captioning.)

Please note that the Login on the OneSearch page has changed from your Library Barcode to your CUNYFirst Login credentials 

Database searching

Please see below for instructions on searching specific databases from the BC library.

This short video from John Jay (CUNY) has a nice overview of using the EBSCO database Academic Search Complete starting at 0:45. Though this is from a different CUNY library, the database works the same here at BC.
