OneSearch Quick Tips: Search Results Display

When using OneSearch, your default search results will display as a Brief View. This view shows the title and citation information for each result. If you want to quickly see the summary of a book or article from your search results page, change the result format to Standard by using the Page Options menu, found at the top of your Search Results. The Standard View displays the title and citation plus the first few lines of the abstract, when it’s available. The Detailed View will show the title, citation, and the full abstract. From the page options menu, you can also change the number of search results per page. If you want to save your display preferences, remember to sign in to your OneSearch Account.
