mySearch is an interface which allows you to search across a range of library resources simultaneously, including books, e-books, journal articles and databases
Use mySearch to find out whether we have a particular book in stock, or to search for books on a given topic. The record will contain a shelf number to help you find the book in the library, and signs on the ends of the shelving bays will also help you locate the right area.
You can use mySearch to search for e-books as well as print books.
To read an e-book, click on the Access Online link displayed under the book title.
Some e-books only allow a single user at a time. If you can't get access to the e-book, try again later. If you are still having problems - let us know.
