Begin Your Research
One Search simplifies the process of finding information by searching a massive collection of academic databases, e-books, scholarly journals, and newspaper articles through one search interface. One Search is typically your first stop in the research process.
Databases are subject-specific collections of scholarly articles, videos, e-books, and other materials. They are useful when you want to dive deeper into your topic or find sources not covered by One Search. Library databases are an essential tool for researchers as they contain the content of up to thousands of different journals. ECU Health employees have access to additional databases.
