New Library Discovery Interface Improves Search for UH Students, Faculty

The new OneSearch provides an optimized search experience for UH students and researchers.

Students and researchers at the University of Houston will soon have an enhanced online discovery experience.

UH Libraries is implementing a new and improved OneSearch, making it easier for users to find what they are looking for.

The new OneSearch, accessible from the Libraries’ home page, provides targeted results from a wide variety of sources, including databases, the Libraries’ catalog and the UH Digital Library. The improved OneSearch goes live on June 2.

OneSearch users will benefit from the following enhancements:

  • Greater relevancy of results
  • Easy filtering for full text only
  • Clean and simple user interface
  • The Recommender Service offers additional full text results related to your search
  • Save Your Citations feature
  • Export results to RefWorks

The Libraries’ OneSearch Implementation Team and the Resource Discovery Systems department will gather user feedback over the course of the summer to further enhance the discovery interface. Users who are interested in sharing feedback, taking part in focus groups or participating in usability testing may contact discovery systems librarian Kelsey Brett to be included.
