With your help, we have been developing and testing the catalogue for the past two years. We have analysed your feedback and improved it along the way so that searching the collection will be easier and more enjoyable.

The new catalogue is a powerful single search tool to discover material from the Library’s collections.

Your existing catalogue log in will continue to work in the new catalogue.

You will still be able to access the old catalogue.

Sometimes your search may take you back to the old catalogue. We appreciate your patience while we complete the task of updating links.
