New Articles Search and change to QuickSearch (from 1st August 2013)

We’ve introduced a new service for article searching. Use the new Articles Search to find journal articles, newspaper articles, book reviews and more. The QuickSearch service no longer offers article searching. Both QuickSearch and Articles Search can be accessed from the Library homepage.

Why has this happened? User testing of staff and students (thanks again to the volunteers) showed that article searching was limited in the QuickSearch service but much easier and more comprehensive in the new system. So for this coming session, article searching will be offered as a separate option. QuickSearch still offers other types of resources such as books, ebooks, databases and journals (but not articles).

Tell us what you think! Article Search and QuickSearch both have ‘Feedback’ options, so tell us how well you think these services are working.
