OneSearch is changing — try the new flavor

In January, OneSearch, our main tool for finding library materials, will be updated to a new platform. We are still configuring the new version, but we’ve made a “beta” version available.

Try the new OneSearch now. You’ll find a feedback form there—let us know what you think!

As with the current OneSearch, keyword searches will bring up print books and DVDs from all Los Rios libraries, along with ebooks, online articles and other formats held at a variety of full-text and audio-visual databases.

Search results page for keywords "social and emotional learning"

Note, when using the beta version you will not be able to request items or view your library record, and item status (such as whether or not a book is checked out) might be inaccurate; that’s all because we’re still using the current system. But you can search and access articles and ebooks, and generally get a sense of how things will be working starting in Spring 2020.

The underlying platform, Primo, is in use at colleges and universities across the U.S. and internationally, including the entire CSU system.
