Wednesday, 08 August 2018The MetaLib service will be replaced at the end of August 2018. More information is provided below.
- ‘Find Resource’ will be replaced by a new service at the same location, the Databases page.
- ‘Find e-Journal’ will be replaced by a new service within Explore.
- ‘QuickSearch’/’ExpertSearch’ will not be part of the new service, as this technology has been superseded. Library Services' advice is either to use Explore, for searching across a range of data sources with relevance ranking, or to consult subject guides or your Subject Liaison Librarian named there, for relevant data sources for your needs.
- ‘MyMetaLib’ will not be replaced. Please make a note of any resources you have bookmarked, in order to locate them through the new service in August. If you have scheduled searches, you may be able to replicate such alerting in individual databases.

UCL's biomedical libraries support clinical practice, education and research at UCL’s affiliated NHS Trusts as part of our Service Level Agreement. Membership of the libraries is open to all staff of our affiliated Trusts.
The libraries provide study space, access to extensive biomedical and health collections, and training and support. We also collaborate closely with libraries at District General Hospitals to facilitate access to resources for medical students whilst they are on clinical placement.
We continue to develop our support to healthcare through our Library Services Strategy and have played a key role in the NHS-HE Forum,
which works to develop connections between NHS and Higher Education networks
and systems. Visit the NHS-HE Forum and Connectivity Project webpages for the most recent news and information.
