I recommend… Discover

September 19, 2013

Welcome to the first post in our regular series of Librarians’ recommendations, where we let you know some of our favourite resources. This week we have a double-act from Turitea Librarians Lucy Broadbent and Noelene White…

We recommend Discover, the search box in the middle of the Library home page. It’s great for anyone, including first time users, undergraduate and postgraduate students, and university staff.

We like Discover because it’s a good place to start, it searches a wide range of resources, and it’s easy to use.

Our top tip for Discover is to take a look at the refining options in the left hand column of the results – this is where you can limit your results to scholarly articles (often an assignment requirement) and all sorts of other options.

If you would like to know more about Discover, take a look at this 2 minute demonstration, Getting started with Discover.
