Research Aids: Library Hub Discover

Library Hub Discover
Jisc Library Hub Discover exposes rare and unique research material by bringing together the catalogues of major UK and Irish libraries. In a single search you can discover the holdings of the UK’s National Libraries (including the British Library), many university libraries, and specialist research libraries. This new service is being built on the Jisc National Bibliographic Knowledgebase, whilst the new interface development is part of wider Jisc Library Services redevelopment activity; see the Transformation Projects blog for more information about this work.

The pilot Discover service includes the catalogues of a limited number of libraries, as shown below, with new libraries being added regularly. The functionality of the pilot service is at an early stage and we will be adding new facilities gradually over coming months. In this initial release you can do a keyword search of the merged library catalogues, view results and details of materials found. For more information, see "What happens next" below.
