Music Research Guide: Finding Books

Using OneSearch

Dacus Library has both physical books and ebooks available for use! You can find both through OneSearch.

Once you've started a search, you can find a physical book by selecting "Held by library" under the Availability dropdown menu; alternatively, you can find ebooks by selecting "Available online" from the same dropdown menu.

Watch this OneSearch tutorial to learn more about how to find books through OneSearch.

Step by step instructions for finding a book in OneSearch:

1. Start at the Dacus Library Homepage.

2. Type the title, topic, or keyword search you're looking for into the OneSearch search box and click search.

3. Your search will automatically bring up results for a variety of materials including books, ebooks, articles, etc. To limit your search to books or ebooks only, use the drop down filters on the left hand side of the search results. You will filter by Resource Type and choose Books.

4. Additionally, you can filter further by using Availability or Location if you are looking for a book that we have here in our physical collection.

Example: Here are books that are in the General Circulating Collection. We used the filter Location > General Collection -- Circulating.
