New LibrarySearch now live!

We are pleased to announce that our new LibrarySearch discovery service is now live.

LibrarySearch replaces the old Library Catalogue and it has lots of great features. It gives a more modern interface:

The new interface is optimised for mobile devices allowing you to use it more easily wherever you are (and this means we are discontinuing the Bookmyne app).

It has a more integrated search which will give you results from books, eBooks, articles, journals and more:

You can refine your results using options such as publication date, resource type, online availability and more.

You can sign in to access your account, place hold requests, renew books, and access online full-text resources.

Signing in will also let you use additional features such as

● Creating a favourites list
● Saving your search history
● Setting alerts for updates on new content that matches your searches
● Emailing results to yourself
● Exporting details of books, eBooks, and articles to resources like RefWorks

LibrarySearch can be accessed by using the search box on the library home page or going directly to the main search page.

LibrarySearch also replaces the old Journals List so if you are interested in finding out what journals the library has then please take a look at this guide.

If you have any queries or comments please email us at library@rgu.ac.uk.

Journals A-Z list problems update

We are pleased to announce that the problems reported yesterday with the Journal A-Z list have been resolved and you will now see links to online journals and information about what years are available.

There are still some changes to be made to restore the layout of the results page fully but these will resolve over the weekend and do not affect being able to find out what is available or get access to the journals.

Again we are sorry for the inconvenience and please get in touch at library@rgu.ac.uk if you have any further problems.

Problem with Journal A-Z list

We are currently experiencing problems with our A-Z list of Journal Titles which is accessible from the library web pages and from the library catalogue.

After performing a search or browsing users are seeing journal titles but no other information i.e. links to access the journals or what years are available.

We are very sorry for the incovenience this is causing, we have reported it to the company and will update you once we know more.
