Information resources, tools, and links to help you research Biology and related topics.

Oxy OneSearch

Oxy's library catalog is called OneSearch. OneSearch searches not only the books that we have in the library, but also searches more generally. Depending on the filters you use, OneSearch will also show you articles from databases that Oxy subscribes to and to books that we don't own. Make sure you are logged into your library account to get the most out of OneSearch.  If you need more help with OneSearch, then take a look at the OneSearch Guide or ask a librarian!
