CSA is now ProQuest

by Debbie

Proquest logo

CSA Illumina is getting a new interface and a new name and from 10 June will be known as ProQuest.

ProQuest is already live and ready to go, links are available in the library catalogue and on the Environment subject page so feel free to try to out.

IMPORTANT! If you have set up a MyResearch account in CSA for saved searches and alerts this will not be transferred automatically into ProQuest, you will have to register for a new MyReseach account in Proquest.

Please email Katharine if you have any questions.

Getting the books you want is now easier

by Debbie

Girl with books
We’ve changed the way that you reserve books. Changes include:

  • When you reserve a book, all the copies we have in stock at all our libraries are now reserved for you, so you should get your books more quickly.
  • You can choose which library you want to pick the book up from, and to specify the date after which you will no longer need it.

This system also replaces the inter-campus loans system. As before, if there is a copy on the shelf at your pickup library, you won’t be able to request a copy from somewhere else. These changes should mean that you get a copy of the book you need more quickly.

For more information on the changes to the system, please see the news item on the library website.
