OneSearch and eresources can both be used for locating literature but they are two different types of resource.
OneSearch works by trawling a number of different collections subscribed to by the Library, known as eresources. However, these individual eresources can be also used as an alternative to OneSearch to locate literature including journal articles, conference proceedings and theses. Other available eresources are databases of images, videos and maps or resources to support your practice. As you progress through your course you may find it more helpful to use individual eresources as you are better able to tailor your searching for optimum results.
You can see which eresources are relevant for your course on our Library Subject Pages or you can browse the Eresources A-Z to explore our collections.
Google Scholar is another tool you can use to find academic literature. It provides details of journal articles, scientific papers, conference proceedings but it's not without its drawbacks. In some instances, you will find freely available access to the full text of a source but often you will encounter a paywall or the source is otherwise inaccessible. To help with this, you can change the settings in Google Scholar to link to the full text of an article if it's subscribed to by the Library.
