You can also search and access DiscoverEd directly from the search box on the Library homepage (www.ed.ac.uk/is/library). And you can access it via the Library tab on MyEd.
DiscoverEd can be searched via the DiscoverEd search points pcs (formerly Library Catalogue machines) in all Library sites. Please note if using DiscoverEd on these machines you cannot sign in and the search is limited to our local collections i.e. books, journal titles, DVDs, etc. See Using DiscoverEd Search Points.
