LION OneSearch is an online research tool that “pulls together” almost all of our Library resources so that they can be explored using a single search box. In other words, rather than searching the cataLION library catalog for books and one of the Albright Library databases such as Academic Search Complete for journal articles, you can do a LION One Search and get results which include books, e-books, journal articles, and government documents in one list. In fact, you could think of LION One Search as the Library’s version of Google searching for quality library resources.
