Page 1+ is the library's main search interface. It includes the Conestoga library catalogue of physical materials (e.g. books, magazines, etc) as well as a huge collection of online materials, including articles from magazines, journals and newspapers, books, standards, videos, reports and more.
This User Guide describes Page 1+'s system features. Use the table of contents to navigate or the "search this guide" box at the top of the page to search for a particular feature.

Do this first. Why? Because you need to be signed in to:
To renew items you have checked out as view well current requests, saved items, and other details, sign in, then use the drop-down menu that appears beneath you name, and then click on My Account/Renew.
You do not need to sign in to Page 1+ to search. You will still be able to access all of the information about items in our collections. Visitors interested in items from our circulating collections can inquire with your local library's Interlibrary Loan service, or visit us on-site.
Page 1+ is huge, but it's not everything. Read on below for options when you're not finding what you want.
There is additional content in our databases that Page 1+ cannot access. To maximize your research, explore other databases of relevance to your research topic.
If you turn on the "Add Results Beyond Conestoga's Collection" feature from the search results page, Page 1+ will expand to display information about articles even if we don't have access to the individual articles themselves. It will also display books that we don't have in our local collection.
Using this feature is great for doing comprehensive research, for example, when doing a systematic review or capstone project.
Even if Conestoga doesn’t currently own an item, we may be able to get a copy for you. “How to Get It” will take you through the steps.
