To learn more about a book, article, or other source, click on its title on the results page. OneSearch will take you to a page that looks like this:

page that shows more information about a source

If the Library has a copy of the article (or book), you will see a link for full text (or a call number for books) in the left-hand column. Click on the PDF Full Text link or Full Text Finder and your article will pop up. If the Library does't have a copy, you can request one—for free!—through the Library's Interlibrary Loan service.

In the middle column, you’ll see all the citation information for the source, such as the title, author, year published, and journal title. The abstract is a summary of the source—it will help you decide if you want to read the whole article or book.

The last column on the right-hand side has a host of tools that you can use to save, email, print, or cite this source. If you use the citation tool, be sure to proofread!

The next page will let you practice using OneSearch to look for articles. (If you are off campus, you may need to login before the database will load. All you need to login is your student ID and myUVU password.)
