iDiscover is a one-stop search tool that helps library users to easily search across and beyond the Library’s holdings using the following searches:
Basic Search - Search for item(s) using any words.
Advanced Search - Search for item(s) using words or phrases by specific fields and applying multiple filters.
In the search results screen, library users can easily identify if the item is a book or journal article and if the item is available online or located in the Library. They can also get an idea of the impact and popularity of an item by looking at the Scopus and Altmetric indicators. iDiscover also recommends specific databases in which users can find more information on their subject area.
In addition, library users can refine their searches by format (full-text online, scholarly & peer-review, open access, library catalogue), content type, publication date, discipline, subject terms, language and library location. Users can also see all relevant results by checking the “Add results beyond your library’s collection” check box.
