OneSearch: Everything


OneSearch searches our catalog for books and many of our full-text databases and online journals. 

Once you have searched the chemical engineering resources mentioned on this page, you can supplement your research by searching for books, and journal articles using OneSearch. You will find more information on the history of the product, manufacturing, production manufacturing, toxicity, pollution etc and current information on companies, markets and prices (in journal articles) for your assigned chemical product.

Example: zinc AND (price* OR manufactur* OR production OR economic* OR market)

Note: AND and OR must be in caps for OneSearch (but not necessary for other databases).

OneSearch yields a lot of results!  Many may be too specific for this assignment but see if you can find some more general, business and economic information on your product with the search strategy shown above.
