iFind Research

Our new iFind Research service is now live.

iFind Research enables you to search across a wide range of information services (e.g. databases of journal articles, books etc).

You can access it at: http://ifind.swan.ac.uk/ or from the LIS home page (it’s the top item on the Digital Library menu option).

Following on from a long period of consultation with students and staff around the university we have designed a service which aims to meet your needs as follows: 

1)      A ‘find an item’ service which takes an author/title of something (e.g. journal article, conference paper, thesis etc.) and aims to find a copy that can be accessed (may be online, but could also be a print copy in the library). This service will save time and money by finding copies of items on reading lists, in bibliographies etc. 

2)      A ‘find something on a topic/subject’ service which aims to help you with an assignment e.g. essay, presentation or a research project. It can help locate relevant references on a particular topic/subject.

3)      A favourites feature which can save details of items found in searches to refer to later or to export by e-mail, or to a reference manager like Endnote. 

We’ll be working to further improve iFind Research – if you  would like to make any suggestions, please e-mail  them to information.systems@swansea.ac.uk
