NUsearch upgrade: search across all our Digital Gallery collections

Find out about the new features in the latest upgrade to the university’s library discovery tool, NUsearch.

Digital Gallery – search across all collections

We’ve added a search box to the Manuscripts and Special Collections Digital Gallery to allow you to search for items across all our digital collections and their sub-collection

Improved linking accuracy for additional providers

NUsearch will now link using provider specific document IDs (where available) for additional resource providers. This improves the accuracy of the links to the full text for article-level resources from these providers.

Some of the additional providers supported include IEEE, Kluwer, JSTOR, Sage, Oxford University Press.

Library staff are available to help with any questions about NUsearch or using our library services. Get in touch via phone, email or live chat.
