Library Plus 2.0

Yes, it's Library Plus 2.0!

We're introducing more improvements to this, our major tool for searching most of our online journals and e-resources in just one go. This will make it even easier for staff and students to find the information they need. Once you've done a search, you'll now get links tailored to specific subjects on the right of the screen. Just click and you'll find more resources!

We've done this because until now some resources haven't been included due to licensing and software issues, but we've been working on it with our supplier to get round this. It means you don't have to navigate as many pages.

There's also a clearer search screen and a new blue icon on the list of search results in the Advanced Search to indicate that only an abstract of an article is available. This is to complement the existing icons that indicate what students can expect from their research results, and has been developed in response to student feedback. 

The improvements have been developed by the Library’s E-resources team, working with Subject Librarians and the development team at EBSCO, the systems supplier.

Please contact us if you would like further information about Library Plus or any of our electronic resources.
