Search & Find

Search and Find Overview

The contents in this section identify the many ways that you can search and locate resources, from using your 'Resource Lists' - recommended reading from within your Blackboard modules - to using specialised databases and e-resources. 

Finding Information Resources

  • Books
  • e-Books
  • Full-text journal articles
  • The Library Catalogue
  • Database collections
  • DORA

Tip Icon Using Library Search is like searching Google, so start by simply entering a few keywords into the search box.

Tip Icon Always consider using the Refine your Search filters on the left hand side of the search pages. Clicking on one or more of the boxes will limit your results to items matching that filter and help you to find exactly what you are looking for.
