To find the physical description of an item (basically, what a book, DVD, CD, or other item looks like) in OneSearch:

  1. Go to OneSearch.
  2. Search for the item in which you are interested and click on the title to view the item's details.

    Item Title
  3. You will now see the item's record. Scroll down until you see Details and there you will find out more information about the item.
    Catalog Record
  4.  If the item is a book, it will include at minimum the number of pages and the size of the book in centimeters. If the item is a videorecording or music recording, the physical description will note whether the item is a DVD, CD, or other material. If the item is an electronic book or streaming video, it will make a note of that as well.
