Library Collections Resource Finder

A new search facility available on the VLE searches the entire collection of library resources available for students.

It can be found by selecting your course on the VLE and if you scroll down you will see the Library Collections Resource Finder on the left hand side of the page.

There is also a link to the Resource Finder on the front page of the Student Intranet Launchpad.

You may search by general keyword, title or author and also have the option to restrict your search to just the library catalogue.  The full search will return details of ebooks, books available in the library and journal articles which are accessible online.

The JISC Media Hub search will help students find still photos, video and sound files.

The search can be filtered by media type, subject, date and genre.  The search results provide background information on the media, with links to external sites and the conditions of use.

Both the Resource Finder and Media Hub can be accessed from outside college, but you may need to authenticate your use by logging in with your college details and password.
