OneSearch Updates

OneSearch has a brand new look!

What does it mean for me?

All the content with which you are familiar will still be available. There is a single search box, with drop-down choices for 'Books and more', Articles and more' and 'Everything'. Your eShelf will still be there, but the folder structure on which that is currently designed has been replaced with a more intuitive tagging structure. There is a new 'auto-complete' feature, which gives you suggestions for your search as you type. Options for saving records in a variety of ways are clearly presented and quick to use. All-in-all we think that you will be pleased with the changes in design.

You may find that once we have moved to the new interface then signing in to OneSearch may not work the first time you try. If this is the case then try closing your browser and starting again. If this doesn't work please delete the cookies on your browser and try again. If you have any concerns about this please contact us.

What the search box will look like

Why are we doing this?

OneSearch was developed before the explosion in mobile device use amongst our users, and even on desktop machines it was looking quite old-fashioned. Some of the functionality was difficult to find and use. Giving OneSearch a complete make-over in terms of how it looks, particularly on mobile devices, makes it much more pleasant and efficient to use.
