OneSearch looks in our catalog and several different databases at once. It brings back a mix of articles, books, e-books, government documents, and movies from all different disciplines. OneSearch is useful if you are just starting your research and want to get a feel for what's available. OneSearch brings back a lot of results, which can be exciting or overwhelming. You might try looking in one of our nursing or health science databases if you're getting frustrated with non-relevant results. You can use OneSearch by typing in the search box on the library homepage.
The catalog contains our books, textbooks, e-books, films, and reference books. If you know you are searching for a book or movie, it might be easier to search the catalog than to use OneSearch because the catalog will limit your results to these kinds of items. You can even restrict your search further to only look at just e-books, or print books, or movies.
The Library has streaming videos through Films on Demand and other sources.
The Library has eBooks through Springer, MyiLibrary, EBL and other sources. To access these eBooks off campus, you will have to login to the Library Proxy. We may not have full access to all of the content in each of these ebook providers, but you can filter out the materials that UCCS does not subscribe to.
Take a look at some of these eBook sources individually using the links below:
