OneSearch is a tool that you can use to search a wide variety of materials from across all disciplines represented in our collection. It is a great place to get a general picture of a topic in books, ebooks, articles, and videos.

More Resources

OneSearch will help you find many sources. However, you may need tools for your major or class. Talk to a librarian or look at a subject guide page for additional search recommendations.

  • Subject Guides - These guides provide recommendations for the best resources for each major and/or course. Use the Subject Guides tab to locate these guides. Many of your Blackboard courses will also provide a link to a customized Library Resources/Subject Guide page for your specific course.
  • Databases - Databases are collections of materials you can search, much of the content full text. On the Databases tab, you will find a list of databases organized by subject and title. Use this list if you want to go beyond the resources found in OneSearch or you want to narrow your search to subject-specific resources.


As a student, you can read ebooks and check out print books from CSP and check out books from other libraries around Minnesota. If you find a book in OneSearch, you can request it there. If you don't see it, you can go to Citation Linker & Resource Finder, and put any information you have about the book in that form. If the book is available, it will then be sent to CSP for you to pick up.

Requested books will be held at the information desk for 2 weeks.

You are also welcome to browse our book collection downstairs in the library. Most of these items can be checked out. If you have trouble finding something, ask a librarian.
