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

Oxy OneSearch

Oxy's library catalog is called OneSearch and is on the library home page.  OneSearch searches for books, articles and more (both digital and physical) that you have access to as an Oxy student.  If it is something we don't own or subscribe to, it can be requested via Interlibrary Loan.  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!
