University Libraries

We have changed the Library Search box on the Library home page, making it even simpler to start finding the resources you need.

We no longer have a drop-down selector for Books, Journals, etc. Instead, just type the relevant words for your search into the box (or paste a citation if you have one) and click Go (or press Enter).

Once you see the list of results, you can then (if need be) refine your search with the options on the left.
