Smart Searching with Searcher

You have your reading list, so now how do you find those books, e-books and e-journal articles?

Don’t use Google, use Searcher!Searcheruse




Searcher is the Library’s discovery service – think of it like a library version of Google, searching the vast majority* of the Library’s resources at the same time, including books, e-books and  e-journal articles.

Pop up to the 1st floor of the Main Library tomorrow, ask us how to find stuff on your reading list and we’ll give you some expert tips on how to use Searcher.

Pop up Library, Wednesday 17th September 2-4pm 1st floor, Main Library
