FINDit is changing

In readiness for the forthcoming autumn term, we’re excited to bring you a preview of the new and upgraded version of FINDit. Both versions will be available, but a planned withdrawal of the Classic Interface is scheduled for 31 January 2019.

FINDit Classic Interface Try FINDit New Interface

You’ll see many improvements when searching for library materials including:

  • improved interface for both monitors and mobile devices
  • easily refined results
  • options to send results and citations to email or print

Some things stay the same

  • My Account features such as saved records, saved searches, search history, loans and requests will be carried across from the existing service.
  • FINDit will continue to integrate with Reading Lists Online, and link out to our range of online resources, including ebooks, ejournals and databases

I don’t like change

We’ve been working hard to make the transition as smooth as possible. Your library search experience is important to us so we’d love to hear your feedback.

Give the new system a try and let us know what you think.

What is FINDit?

FINDit is a way of searching for books, full-text journal articles, news articles, conference proceedings and more via one search box.

What’s in FINDit?

  • All of the resources (books, print journals etc…) held in our libraries.
  • All of the USW eBooks collection.
  • All of our eJournals
  • Most of the content of our online databases
  • My Account – to learn more about your library account watch our short film.

What’s not in FINDit?

Not all of the content available in our databases is accessible using Article Search in FINDit. If you are having problems finding results then we recommend that you try using individual databases and/or contact your Faculty Librarian who will be happy to help you find resources.
