Welcome to Ulster University Library

Searching Made Easy


Have you tried USearch, the Library's discovery service? The USearch service, provided by EBSCO, 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.

As well as the USearch service, there is also a comprehensive 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 USearch service, please email us at usearch.feedback@library.ulster.ac.uk.
