Your subject-specific guide to using library resources.
Library Search is a digital catalogue which holds a record of all physical and digital stock held across all University library buildings. Essentially, it operates like an advanced search engine that will provide the location and access details for any of our millions of items of physical and digital stock. Anyone can access the catalogue online via the Library website, but as a student you can also log in to your Library account and monitor the status of your loans.
The touchscreen device near this pause point is a Library Search terminal (we also call it a TOPAC). If you do not have time to log into a PC and you forgot your phone, this is another way to search for physical resources (you cannot read e-books or electronic articles on this device).
Next stop: You have almost complete and entire circuit of the bookshelves, from the desk. Can you see the next pause point on the side facing the entrance?
