We are excited to be able to share with you the new logo for DiscoverEd, the Library’s new Discovery service.
Is it a pile of books? Is it a book shelf? Is it the Main Library? That is up to you and your imagination.
Like the white on blue? How about blue on white?
Look out for this logo on the website, Twitter, Facebook, posters, postcards, flyers, etc., around the University as we get closer and closer to launch date so you can keep up to date with the changes that will be occurring.
Thank you to Norman Rodger, Projects and Innovation Manager, and Ianthe Sutherland, Library Digital Developer, in Library & University Collections (L&UC), for designing the logo.

We are looking for your help to assist us in making decisions on some of the links to be used in item records in our new Discovery service DiscoverEd.
These are the links you will use to find out how to access a print item or online item from the Library.
For a print item the link will let you:
- Find out what Library holds the item and, where applicable, what floor it is on
- The shelfmark of the item
- See if the item is available to borrow or on loan
- Request the item if it is on loan
- And more
For online resources (e-journals, e-books, etc.,) the link will let you:
- Get direct access to online site
- Give information on what years are available to you
- Log in information
- And more
We have some control over what these links are called and as we had such a great response to It’s all about the search box – how you can influence DiscoverEd we want to invite you to take part in a second exercise that will help us decide on the best text to use for these links.
