You can use the DataONE search engine ONEMercury to find one or more datasets. You may do this in one of several ways:

  • From the DataONE home page at locate the “search” box in the top center of the DataONE home page. ONEMercury appears as the default search engine. To search for data, enter a search term in the “for” box to the right of the “search” box and click “go”.
  • From that same DataONE home page, scroll down near the bottom and click on the picture of the ONEMercury search interface. This opens the ONEMercury search interface and provides access to its advanced search features.
  • You can go directly to the ONEMercury page at

As DataONE develops, other search interfaces will be added. Developers can also consult the DataONE API documentation for ways of enabling DataONE search in their applications.
