Discovery Tools

The NUP Library provides a wide range of discovery tools that enable you to search effectively all the available resources. You can take full advantage of our various tools and customise your search.

You can electronically access or print material through our federated search engine, EDS (Ebsco Discovery Service). Through EDS you can submit generic-type queries to the sum of NUP Library resources and receive a list of relevant items. Depending on the format of material and your location (in campus or remote) you can even have access to the full text of resources.

An example: EDS integrates results from our WebPAC, our catalogue of books and serials. Results from WebPAC that correspond to print material will only denote the descriptive information, the location and the availability. Results that correspond to electronic material will give you all the above and the access point to the resource.

EDS is also available from the homepage of the Library website. It is powered by Innovative Interfaces.
