Welcome to the Library

Introducing the new
USearch service


USearch is the Library's new discovery service, provided by EBSCO, which offers a Google-like search across many of the Library databases with links to thousands of e-journals. It presents a single results list of journal articles, conference papers, reports & more. Search results can be refined easily using intuitive controls shown alongside your results. Your search results will often include direct links to full-text, either as PDF or HTML text. Where no direct links are available, you may see alternative full-text access represented by the 'U Find it' button:

USearch searches and links to Library e-resources. To find books (including e-books), printed journals & other hard copy material please use the Library Catalogue. A Library guide to USearch is available for more information.

Along with the new USearch service, there is also a new Library e-journals list, again supplied by EBSCO. The e-journals list offers a simple way to find all the full-text titles on offer from the Library and their coverage.

If you have any comments on the new service, please email us at usearch.feedback@library.ulster.ac.uk.

Belfast Library Services: Summer 2015

The Library has relocated to Block BB and will be open Monday-Thursday 8.45am-5pm & Friday 8.45am-4pm. At the moment some services are disrupted but Library users can get to the bookshelves again and are free to browse the collections. Computing, Wi-Fi, printing, copying and scanning are not yet set up so these remain in Block BA (Room BA-03-024). We hope to offer these services in the new Library soon. For more details, see the updated GBD 2015 Library Fact Sheet.

Document Delivery Service: New Developments

The Library Document Delivery service has introduced a new ‘plug-in-less’ secure electronic delivery method. It makes accessing requested journal articles simpler & brings greater flexibility to the use of delivered articles. We are also in the process of withdrawing paper-based document delivery request forms. From Monday 17th August, all document delivery requests should be submitted using the online document delivery request form.
For more information please see the Library Document Delivery page.
