Welcome to OneSearch

SMCCD colleges: Cañada College, College of San Mateo, Skyline College

OneSearch launches December 20

OneSearch is designed to provide a comprehensive search of each SMCCCD college's print and online collections. Search results will appear in categories based on source and content type. You can see what articles, books, and databases we have available and get immediate access to full-text journal, magazine, and newspaper articles. This search provides access to much more content and format types and new content is added daily.

OneSearch is now available! Explore resources for each campus.

Each college has a separate search portal, branded with its own colors, and featuring content for the campus as well as the three colleges.
