Though OneSearch can do many things, there are currently some instances when OneSearch is not the best resource to use, like:
- when you need to use highly controlled vocabulary, e.g. database-specific subject terms;
- when you are searching for historical newspaper articles;
- when you are looking for country, company and industry reports, typically found in business databases; and
- when you are looking for legal research, specifically legal journal titles, case reports and legislation.
