Library Search


Find books, journals, articles and other resources, whether print or electronic, with Library Search

For each item, Library Search will tell you:

  • the Library in which it is held
  • how long the book can be borrowed (long loan is four weeks, but there are Student Text Collection four hour loans as well)
  • the location and shelfmark, which you will need in order to find the book on the shelf, if it's in print
  • the status, which will tell you if a book is out on loan and when it is due back 

Library Search: what do your results mean?



The Resources tab on the top menu will take you to fast links for different types of resources if you know exactly what you're looking for.
For example, Newspapers or Government Publications
