A Tip for Using One Search Off Campus

One Search is a great way for anyone to see the broad range of materials we provide to complement study and research from anywhere in the world, even if you aren't a currently working or studying at JCU. But remember when you search One Search from off campus there are some things you won't see unless you login.

Some of our subscription collections are not permitted to be discovered by non-JCU people by the terms of our licensing agreements, so if you are off campus remember to log in by clicking




Which is located at the very top of your search results screen:



















This will take you to the Elibary Gateway login screen














Use your JCU login and password and you will be returned to your results page, with access to even more content including Web Of Science citation counts, direct linking to full text, and specialist collections like the Naxos streaming music collection. Even in the simple example shown in the images the number of records returned has jumped by 20%.




















Increasingly One Search is direct linking to full text rather that going through Find It@JCU - this can mean if you haven't logged in the full text provider will not recognise you as part of JCU and you may get a screen asking you to pay for an article rather than getting access to our subscription.

So get in the habit of logging into One Search when you're at home, at work, or on the road.
