Mystified by MetaLib? The library is here to help.

by Katharine Thompson

MetaLib is the place where all the library’s online resources can be found. It’s a one-stop-shop for databases, e-journals, encyclopaedias and specialist search engines.

It’s also possible to personalise MetaLib so you can easily access the e-journals and databases you use all the time, as well as save useful references and even set up automatic searches which alert you when new research articles are published.

To help you get the most from MetaLib the library has added a new list of FAQs to our website.

Students can find out more about using MetaLib in Olivia – Unit 4 Databases.

Katharine and Debbie are always happy to answer any questions you have about MetaLib, or any of the library’s online resources. So if you’re still mystified by MetaLib – get in touch!
