What is OneSearch?

NEW

OneSearch combines the old Library Catalog with a new Discovery system. 

Now you can check to see what books you have checked out and renew them on the same platform you search for all the library's content - books, eBooks, articles, media, images, and more. Moreover you can expand your search to include 54 of South Carolina's college libraries - Clemson, USC, College of Charleston, etc. - and order books through PASCAL Delivers without ever leaving OneSearch.

Be sure to log in with your AU email name and password to enable full functionality.
