Since last two decades, the information and communication technologies have equipped the librarian with certain e-tool to provide the e-resources services to the end users in an effective and efficient manner. E-resources have marked an impressive footprint in managing health sciences library and delivering the information services to the end users. Today health sciences library and information system require an effective and efficient Electronic Resource Management System (ERMS) to assist the librarian in managing the e-resources. The Health Sciences Library of Kasturba Medical College, Manipal is a pioneer in providing services to the faculties and students of various disciplines. The library has large volume of e-resources in terms of book, journals and other online databases to cater the need of library users. This paper highlights the approach towards implementing ‘single window search’ tool to meet the users’ requirement at Health Sciences Library of Kasturba Medical College, Manipal. As the users have to click on each and every subscribed e-content for conducting literature search, there was a need for a ‘single window search’ at Health Sciences library. The Health Sciences Library evaluated available one-stop-searching tools and identified EBSCO Discovery Services (EDS) as the solution. ‘Single Window Search’ tool went live in the month of March 2017 at Health Sciences Library. Single Window Searching tool can search across library’s all subscribed e-resources the way the Google does. This paper makes an effort in providing the details on the Single Window Search Tool which has provided for effective management of e-resources held by the KMC Health Sciences Library, Manipal.
