Videos for top tips on LibrarySearch

9 October 2014

The University Library Service has produced three video tutorials on using LibrarySearch, including ‘Top tips on ArticleSearch’, ‘Finding items on your reading list’, and ‘Renewing your items’.

‘Top tips on ArticleSearch’ shows you how to access and use ArticleSearch to find journal articles for assignments and research. ArticleSearch is great to use because unlike other search tools, you should have full text access to everything you find so you spend less time trawling through results you cannot access. Log in once with your Cardiff University username and password to access full text articles anywhere.


The ‘Finding items on your reading list’ video is a quick tutorial on searching for items, seeing if a copy of the item is available and how to take note of the classmark to find the item’s location in the library.


The ‘Renewing your items’ video outlines top tips on renewing the books and other items you’ve borrowed from the Library – so you can keep items for longer and always know when they’re due back.


We hope you find these videos useful, but if you need further help please come visit us in the library!
