"Search" Option on Library Website

The home page of the TU Dublin Library website shows two options for searching - "Library Catalogue" & "Search" which searches the library catalogue as well as several databases and e-journals. 

The Search option allows you to search for content in several  of the databases and e-journals that TU Dublin Library subscribe to, in addition to searching the catalogue for books/e-books. In this way, it is a good place to start researching. It also allows searches of more different search fields and combinations. Dates, languages, content type, and so on can all be narrowed down. The advanced search screen is shown below and shows you all the potential options for searching available. 

Using Search can find information on your search terms in books/ebooks, newspapers, academic journals, etc. and will direct you to where to find the books in our physical library and/or take you straight to full-text articles or e-books. You may need to confirm your library PIN or TU Dublin login to access these on a non-TU Dublin computer as is usual with electronic resources.

Here is a short video that explains how to do a basic search.

Contact library staff if you have difficulty accessing a particular resource.
