*** Welcome to the Wilson OneSearch ***


With Wilson OneSearch students can conduct research across most of the resources provided by the JSM Library using one search box. OneSearch combines a single, unified way to search across library resources with simple and easy to use tools to refine and filter searches and find the best resources for researchers.

Wilson OneSearch contains:

   - Most of the libraries databases including Jstor & all the EBSCO databases.
   - Academic eBooks and reference titles (Encyclopedias, Dictionaries, etc.)
   - Newspapers
   - The Library collection

Is anything not in OneSearch?

Yes! A few of the libraries databases cannot be searched with Wilson OneSearch. These databases can be located by selecting the MORE RESOURCES tab at the top of the page.

The library staff has also identified a number of free online academic databases and resources that are not included by searching Wilson OneSearch. These are located under the WEB RESOURCES tab.

Finally, Wilson College Students & faculty can still search any of the individual electronic resources available through the John Stewart Memorial Library by going to the ONLINE DATABASES webpage. There they will find a comprehensive alphabetical listing, with links, to each individual resource.

For help using Wilson OneSearch or any of the library resources please contact a library staff member.
