September 2018: Please note the change of date for the new service (previously August 2018).

Due to unforeseen delays, a further update will be provided when the switchover date is confirmed.

The MetaLib service is due to be replaced in the next few weeks. 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  • ‘QuickSearch’/’ExpertSearch’ will not be part of the new service, as this technology has been superseded.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.

Please visit our website over the summer for updated information on the changes, and information on how to use the new services. If you have any questions, please contact the e-resources team.
