Using OneSearch for your information needs

What do you need to know to get the most out of the new OneSearch system?

Cal Poly Humboldt Librarians

How do you report an error or pose a question

If you find a record in OneSearch and want to ask something about it or tell us that it has problems, you can send us a link to that exact record.  The same technique works for making a permanent link that will always go back to that record.

For the problems and questions, just send them to alma-imp@humboldt.edu.  Tell us what's wrong or ask us your question and send us the link.  Here's how to get that link.  From the single record screen go to the Send To options on the record and click the PERMALINK icon.Screenshot of Primo Get It display

Then copy the link and email it to us with your question, or use it however you want.  Plug it into Canvas.

Looking for your old saved searches?

If you used our old online catalog (Articles+) for saving your searches, you may have noticed that they didn't carry over to our new system (OneSearch). We apologize for the inconvenience, but don't panic- we have a solution. You can export your saved searches from the old system at the following link: http://library.calstate.edu/humboldt.

The video below is a step-by-step guide to export your searches and upload them to the Zotero citation management system. If you prefer a different citation manager, you can upload them to other services as well. You also have the options to save as a text file or to email yourself the search information.

Access to the old system won't last long- be sure to download your data by the end of the Spring 2018 semester!
