Finding Books in OneSearch

OneSearch will show you the following types of books:

  • Books in print (hard copy) at LNDL
  • Ebooks owned by LNDL
  • Books in print at other USMAI consortium libraries

Note: We cannot borrow ebooks from other libraries. USMAI borrowing is for print books only. You may see ebook results that we do not own in OneSearch. We can help you request print versions of those books!   

Example of a print book result at LNDL:

Requesting USMAI Books in OneSearch

The process for requesting a print book from another USMAI library is similar to putting an LNDL book on hold.

1. Click on the book title from the OneSearch results list.

2. Click “Sign In” on the yellow banner under “How to get it” if you are not already signed into OneSearch.

3. Log in with your Loyola or Notre Dame email username and password.

4. Click “Request from USMAI” under “How to get it.”

5. When the Request form pops up, confirm that your pickup location is “Loyola-Notre Dame Library (LNDL)” (the default).

6. The “Not Needed After” field is optional. Entering a date here will automatically cancel the request after that date has passed.

7. Click “SEND REQUEST” at the bottom of the form.

8. You will receive an email with instructions when the book is ready to be picked up from LNDL. USMAI books typically take 1-3 business days to arrive.

Electronic Books

Electronic books owned by the Loyola/Notre Dame Library can be accessed at any time from any location. If you are accessing an e-book from off-campus, you will need to use your Loyola or Notre Dame credentials to log in. Although many of LNDL's e-books are listed in OneSearch, the most direct way to search for e-books is through our E-Book databases.

Some e-books can be downloaded for reading offline on a computer or mobile device. View instructions for accessing e-books.

Free eBooks from NCBI


The following are some of the books at LNDL that can be accessed electronically. Several of these books can only be accessed by a few people at a time. If you get a message that indicates that the number of users is reached, close the book and try again in five minutes.
