New article search now live

Our new article search is now live. The search can be accessed directly from the Library home page. Click the ‘Article Search’ tab to begin searching.

The new article search offers:

  • a single search for articles available to Queen’s staff and students in full text
  • full text access both on and off campus

The search results will display ‘guest access’ if you are off campus. Login with your normal Queen’s username and password for full access.

Untick the ‘Full Text’ box in the search results page if you want a general search for books and articles.

The ‘Articles’ search presented as part of the QCat Discover Library Catalogue will be withdrawn at the end of July.
