Over the summer we launched our brand new library management system: Discover More. Your new single search tool for all your print and electronic resources at Edge Hill University.

We know this will be a new experience for anyone joining Edge Hill this year, but if you’re a returning student it’s likely you’ll also notice some small changes. But rest assure these changes have brought about some great benefits!

You can now search for all your resources, be that books, eBooks or academic journals, in one handy location. With improved discoverability of your Library resources Discover More will ensure you’re able to access everything you need for your studies!

Finding Academic Information

If you need any help getting to grips with the new system, the best place to find out more about accessing resources is our UniSkills web pages. Here you’ll find our dedicated Finding Academic Information web page, with a wealth of information and support including handy guides and video tutorials around what subject resources are available, where to find your reading lists and how to use Discover More.

UniSkills Workshops

Our popular Uniskills workshops and webinars programme returns w/c 11th October and covers a wide range of topics around information skills including academic reading, finding academic resources, conducting a literature review and much more!
