New Library Search

We switched to our redesigned Library Search interface on Thursday, 24 August.

Please note:

  • all searches from the Library web pages will be directed to the new interface
  • any 'Permalinks' originally created in the former user interface will re-direct to the new interface
  • your 'e-Shelf' folders from the former interface will be converted to 'labels' in the new 'Favourites' area

A reminder that Library Search has been redesigned with a fresh, modern interface, one that is responsive to mobile devices. A beta version of the new interface was made available for several weeks during the summer vacation and the design and functionality was tweaked during that time. Further enhancements to the interface are planned by the software provider later in the year and we will continue to tweak the design and functionality as appropriate.  

If you have any comments about the new design please send them to:

Library lending: are you ready for the change?

A number of changes to the lending of library materials are being implemented that will improve your experience of borrowing and renewing items and make it easier for you to manage your library account.

Further details about the changes are available.
