Get started with Scholar OneSearch
Scholar OneSearch is the best place to look for books and e-books that Northeastern has access to. Search results will include a variety of materials including books (both print and electronic), articles, videos, data sets, and more. There are many useful filters in Scholar OneSearch to help narrow down your results, including a material type filter on the left hand side of the results page.
Tips for using Scholar OneSearch
- Try using the advanced search to specify a subject and author you are interested in at the same time.
- Sign in to Scholar OneSearch to see additional results. Some databases, such as Web of Science, won't allow their results to populate Scholar OneSearch for anyone who is not signed in.
- Use the filters on the left hand side of the search results page. Some of the most popular filters are material type (to limit to a specific type of research such as an e-book or e-journal), author/creator (to see who is prominently publishing in the field), and year (to limit to research in a particular time period).
If we don't have access to an article you need...
Try using Northeastern's Interlibrary Loan system to request books, book chapters, or articles not available at NU. Articles can be delivered electronically.
