Searching the Library Catalogue using OneSearch

All of our library books, as well as electronic books, DVDs and print journals, can be found by using the Library Catalogue option in OneSearch.  You can access OneSearch from the library website or can go there directly via this link

If you know the title of the book you’re looking for, simply enter it into the search box and select Library Catalogue. You can also search for a keyword, subject or a particular author.

If you prefer, you can search for ‘everything’ but please note this will also mean you get results for other online resources such as journal articles.

Your results will indicate whether the item is a book, an e-book, or a print journal. If it is a print book that we have in the library, look for the shelf number – in this case 613.2 GIB.

If you want to limit your search to only look for books or ebooks then you can use the filters on the left hand side of the screen. Find the option for Resource Type and select book. Next, you can select whether you want to limit your results to held by library or available online for e-books. Read more information about E-Books here

To find out whereabouts in the library a book is located and how many copies are available, click on the title or the ‘available at’ link. At this point you will be prompted to sign in if you have not already done so. You need to be signed in, in order to see how long you can borrow a book for.

If no copies are available, then you will have the option to request one. Remember, if you’re not sure where a book is or how to find it, you can always ask a member of library staff to point you in the right direction.
