You can add or remove databases by going to the Catalog tab, and clicking on Search Setup at the bottom of the left-hand column. Then click on Enriched Content Searches. Click on Edit to the right of One Search Database Information. Clicking on Add Databases will let you add new ones that are available through AskRI or your own library’s subscriptions. Clicking on Edit Databases will let you Remove those databases that are no longer available through AskRI or your own library’s subscriptions. To add new World Book databases from the AskRI subscriptions as listed above, the username is rilink and the password is stars.
The following databases are available directly at AskRI, but CANNOT be added to OneSearch:
Here’s how to provide links to the resources in AskRI.org, the HELIN and Ocean State Libraries catalogs, free resources on the web, plus your own video-streaming and online database subscriptions.
If you haven't already done so, you will need to turn on OneSearch in the Site Configuration|Site Info tab in your site's Back Office (remember to Save). Your Follett customer number must be in the Site Customer Number box.(link to screen shot)
If you want students and teachers who are not logged in to be able to use One Search, you will also need to check Search One Search as Guest in the Guest Access Level in your Back Office.
Then set up OneSearch in the Catalog tab by clicking on Search Setup at the bottom of the left-hand column. Under Enriched Content Searches, choose OneSearch from the options listed, and add the databases that you want to include. (If the list of available databases does not display the first time, close the empty window, and choose to edit OneSearch Database Information again.) If a particular database has already been set up for your site, you can find and edit the settings for it by clicking on Edit Databases. If you are adding a database that hasn't already been set up for your site, click on Add Databases. (link to screen shot) You can add any of the free databases and any to which you subscribe (or any options for World Book or EBSCO that are available through AskRI.org). By default, One Search does not add any databases – you must set them up.
For any database that you want to add, you must select it by checking the box in the left-hand column. If you want the database to be added to the links in Destiny Discover, you will also need to check that column. Note that links added to Destiny Discover by One Search will use the button logos assigned by Follett. You can choose to display links at the top of the Destiny Discover page as well as in the Links carousel. As you can with any other carousel, you can move the links carousel to any position relative to the other carousels, including eBooks, Audiobooks, Topics, Recently Added, etc.
Important note: There are a number of options to be considered when selecting a database to be included for searches using OneSearch in your library. Be very selective about the databases that you want to Preset as a selected search (see screen shot on page four). Databases that are preset as selected will be searched EVERY TIME a search is done in your catalog, with the results displayed on the OneSearch tab. You will want to preset as selected only those databases that will be most useful to your students. Having too many choices in the search results can be more confusing than helpful. Databases that you want to have available, but not searched every time, should not have this option checked. Databases that you choose, but that are not preset as selected are available on the Advanced Search tab in the Catalog. (link to screen shot)
If you want students and teachers who are not logged in to be able to access a particular database, you must choose the option to Allow Guests to use the database. (link to screen shot) You can also choose to let students or teachers WHO ARE LOGGED IN, to see search results from a particular database by selecting the corresponding option. If you want students and teachers who are not logged in to be able to use One Search, you will also need to check Search One Search as Guest in the Guest Access Level in your Back Office.
Parameters that you will need to set up World Book and EBSCO databases that are available through AskRI are listed elsewhere on this page.
All of the databases that you can set up in OneSearch are listed. If a "translator" for a particular database is currently being updated, the list will tell you that this database is temporarily unavailable through One Search.
