New search interface for Cambridge

last modified May 13, 2019 09:59 AM

iDiscover is the new catalogue interface for Cambridge - a single point from which to search all print books, journals and eresources, at the container and article level (i.e. you'll find the titles and contents (where indexed) of books and journals that match your search terms). It replaces LibrarySearch and LibrarySearch+, which are no longer available.

iDiscover is designed to be intuitive, but you will notice a few differences in the ways it displays results and how you can filter them. A guide to using iDiscover has been developed, which is the recommended place to start, or come and ask a member of Library staff.

The Whipple Library is open to readers (anyone with a University or UL reader card) between

9:30 - 16:50 Monday - Friday
