Discovery Service

The Discovery Service is a search engine to help you find articles, books and other academic material.

The Discovery Service searches many library resources in one go. Finding items from the Library Catalogue and over 100 databases, it presents you with one result list of books, eBooks, eJournals, articles, conference papers and more.

Who is it for?

Provided by a company called EBSCO, the Discovery Service enables our students, staff and researchers to access the library's information resources through a single search.

You can access Discovery on PCs or mobile devices

Where and when?

You can use the Discovery Service either by clicking on the blue button in the top right-hand corner of most of our web pages and entering your query into the Discovery search box or by going to the Discovery Service homepage. To access from your workplace or another institution, you may need to use the link for working when away from the University campus.
