GCC's OneSearch is a discovery tool that has replaced our former, more traditional library catalog. OneSearch allows a user to search the library's catalog an index of print books and ebooks and most of our library databases at the same time. What this means is that there are more options/functions up front that can help you distinguish the specific type of source you are looking for, whether a book, an ebook, or an article from our databases.
Take a look at the screenshots below to acquaint yourself with the look and feel of the library's newest tool. Both images show the OneSearch's Advanced Search option, which provides more flexibility and control in searching and the results you retrieve. Click on the images to review the results you would get for each of the searches.
You can also search for books on a particular topic. See Before You Begin for guidelines on how to choose search terms for your topic and select the Advanced Search screen displayed below. Follow the option selections for the dropdown menu items.
To read any electronic book that you find in your search results, click on Linked Resources at the bottom of the page. If you are doing your search remotely, your login and password will be the same as for your Canvas account.
When you open any of the Library's databases or e-books from off campus, you will be prompted to log in. Use the same login and password as you would use for your GCC Canvas Account.
