Library Services

Welcome, online and off-campus students! The Neumann Library's collections and services are available to you through this guide.

Get Started

In OneSearch:
  • OneSearch includes almost all of the library's research databases, where you can find peer-reviewed journal articles, books, ebooks, and media
  • Sign in with your UHCL computing username (e.g., jonest2345) and password to view fullest results and full text and to pin favorite items, renew materials, and request items from other UH campuses

Advanced Search

Natural language searches often work well. Example:
     how body image affects women

You also can use simple keywords and quotation marks for a short, commonly used "exact phrase." Example:
     "body image" women

Once you have a set of results, select and apply relevant filters (limiters such as peer-reviewed journalsavailable online, etc.) on the left of the screen.

For more complex searches like body image AND (women OR girls), use Advanced Search.

In individual subject databases:

Use OneSearch Advanced Search to look for scanned materials that your professor may have placed on course reserve through the library.

As shown below, select the radio button for Course Reserves. In addition to searching by keyword or title of the item you're looking for, you may search specifically by Course ID (example: PSYC 4370) or by Course Instructor name.

While most materials will be available or delivered to you online, there will be times when you want a physical item like a book or DVD.
