USearch will be particularly valuable to undergraduates getting started in their research. It is most useful in …

• locating information on a topic from a large range of online sources

• finding out what is available on a subject when you are not sure where to start

• providing ready access to the full text of journal articles which can be saved, printed, emailed or exported

• discovering new and relevant sources for research

However, be aware that USearch is not always appropriate to use and, for certain subject queries, using other library resources will present much better search results. USearch may provide you with sufficient results very quickly, but searching single databases individually may be necessary for more thorough and precise research. We recommend that if you:

• want to consult a specific journal, then you should use the Library Catalogue or go to the A-Z list of E-Journals from the library website or through the Portal/Blackboard Learn

• want to check availability of books (including ebooks) then you must use the Library Catalogue

• rely on a particular, specialist resource with additional search facilities, then it will usually be a better option to go directly to that resource via our A-Z list of databases through the Portal
