Improved access to Library SmartSearch

Library SmartSearch was introduced this academic year as a combined search facility for printed books, full text electronic books and journal articles.

Towards the end of last term we held a focus group with students to obtain feedback on the new facility. In general, this was very positive, but revealed some frustration and confusion relating to the positioning of the search-box within the Subject LibGuides. Consequently, the Library SmartSearch link from the Library home page now takes you to a single Library SmartSearch page that incorporates:
  • Search box for Library SmartSearch 
  • Links to Subject LibGuides for advice on additional sources of information 
  • Quick links to databases and journals that you may frequently use
We hope this will make searching for the resources you need simpler and quicker.
