Library search is changing, make sure you’re in the know

Posted by rmt22 at Mar 08, 2016 04:10 PM |
A new, improved Library Search system 'goes live' on Wednesday 13 April, with a slight disruption to service.

Following feedback from students and consultation with the Students’ Union, we are introducing a new system for searching in the library which will give you more control and many more resources to search from.

We 'go live' with new look Library Search on Wednesday 13 April. Some eBooks and eJournals will be unavailable on Wednesday but you may still be able to access some of them using old Library Search. Another alternative for eJournals is Google Scholar.  We expect full access to be available from Thursday 14 April.

The new system isn’t that different to the old one, but it provides many improvements. Think of it as Library Search 2.0! As well as books, eBooks and journals, you will be able to search our research archives, rare books, University exam papers, dissertations and theses all in one go. It will also make your searching easier. You can create and save lists of your favourite books and other resources, you can browse the Library shelves virtually and any new items added to the Library (including digital resources such as eBooks) will become available for you to use more quickly.
