The new catalogue is a powerful single search tool to discover material in the Library's collections.

With your help, we have been developing and testing the new catalogue for the past two years. We have analysed your feedback and made improvements along the way.

We are always eager to hear what you think of the new catalogue. Let us know your thoughts using the ‘feedback’ link at the top of every page.  

As we continue to make improvements, we will give you more information through a series of guides and blog posts.
