What is the Discovery Tool?
The ‘Discovery tool’ is a powerful means of accessing all the library information resources through a single search. You can find articles, books and other academic material, it is designed by a company called EBSCO, to provide access to the library’s information resources through a single search.

To access full text (where available) you need to login with your OpenAthens. If you don’t have open Athens you can still access as a guest (limited access).  You can register here for OpenAthens.

How does it work? The Discovery Tool searches all Library subscribed resources and the National core content and other resources in one go. It find items from the library catalogue, health care databases, the institutional repository and other free resources, it presents you with one result list of journal articles, conference papers, books, e-books and more.
