Service Description

Articles Search is an externally hosted service that provides the Library's principal discovery service to its extensive collections of online search services and electronic resources - databases, books, journal articles, reports, conference papers &c.
Articles Search is freely available to all via the internet, although logging in with College credentials is required for access to subscribed books, journals and other online resources discovered during the search and refinement process.
