Search and Find

Being able to search for and find appropriate information resources are critical skills for university study and research. Starting with the right access tool will make your task easier.

Library Search

Library Search uses Ex Libris Primo to enable users to search the Library’s online and print resources through a single search box. You may limit your initial search to just books or just journal articles. Results from that search may be refined further by choosing categories from the right hand side of the results page.

Help using the Library Search is available from the Library Search guide, or try our Library Search tips for hints and suggestions, enabling you to get the most out of Library Search. The Library staff are available to provide advice to help you get the information you need for study and research.

Advanced Library Search


Start here if you know which database you need. Help guides are linked from within each database. You can Search for a Database, or browse by the following categories:

High Demand (Course Reserve) Collection

Items in high demand for assignments or exams are put temporarily into the High Demand (Course Reserve) Collection to ensure they are more easily accessible at point of need.

To find which items are currently in this collection, you can search in Library Search, or visit Using the High Demand Collection for more information.
