Potential early change to new Library ‘Articles and more’ search

Library Services is currently in the process of making improvements to your Library Search by replacing our current ‘Articles and more’ (journals and databases) with the new EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). EDS provides a platform for users to find articles and database entries that the Library subscribes to in one easy search.

Library search box that may be affected due to potential works

The link to the new ‘Articles and more’ search was added to the Library Search box on the Library Services homepage a few months ago, so you may have already experienced this new, improved way of searching.  

We had planned to make the new EDS live in August, but there is a possibility that the current 'Articles and more' search might need to redirect to the new EDS ( sooner than we intended it to (as early as 5 May 2024).

This unfortunately means that our current documentation on how to search won’t be updated everywhere we’d like it to be.

It also means that the current Library Search interface you are used to interacting with might look a bit different than what you are used to. For example, in the new interface, there is a box at the top of the page to click to filter results. These filter options will then ‘pop-out’ on the right-hand side of the page. There is also a drop-down for source type at the top that will allow you to limit your searches to academic journals, magazines, conference reports or reviews. Additionally, once you’ve selected an article, you can then choose to save it, cite it, add it to project folder, share it or download it.

This early changeover to the new EDS should cause very little disruption to your search experience and won’t affect how you search for books or e-books or DVDs. Going forward the new EDS will completely replace the current ‘Articles and more’ tab.

We will continue to keep you informed about these changes. Guidance for searching using the new interface will be available as soon as possible, and Library Services staff will be happy to assist; please contact
