Books, Articles, Videos and more

The library's holdings include books, journals, audio and video recordings, and maps in both print and electronic format.  The library subscribes to over 38,000 print and electronic journals and over 1 million print and electronic books.  Use OneSearch to find books, articles, audio and video recordings, and maps in any format.

Why use OneSearch?

OneSearch is a discovery tool that searches the UNF Library's content with one easy search.  With one Google-like search you can find a wide variety of library holdings.  Filters let you easily refine your search by format, date ranges, subjects, and more. OneSearch searches books, ebooks, scholarly articles, audiovisual resources, images, and more. It includes:

  • the library catalog
  • articles from online journals
  • streaming audio and video content
  • local digital collections (images, videos, documents)

OneSearch searches most but not all library holdings. Some database content may not be included.  In-depth or comprehensive research is better done in subject specific databases.

The Library Catalog is still available. If you're searching for a particular title or works by a particular author, the Library Catalog may be your best search option.  If you can't find what you're looking for be sure to ask.
