An advanced search interface allows you to search using a wide range of criteria. Choose to search for print and electronic titles, or select your preference; use options to search for titles published in the language or country that interests you most; use LC or DDC classification to identify titles in your subject area, adding options to refine results by geographical area and period; view interdisciplinary publications in a range of disciplines; look for specific formats; consult your approval selections online.
It's possible to save combinations of search parameters for future use, creating personalised search tools that make it quicker and easier to consult the database. Searches can beáset up directly from the main search screen and updated easily.
Additional tools designed specifically to aid selection include:
- dedicated search facilities for Art libraries and for public libraries
- cover images
- tables of contents
- "core title" icon indicating publications considered by our bibliographers to be essential titles
- thematic bibliographies selected by our approval experts
- option to import search results in CSV format
- MARC records
Once you've found what you're looking for, titles can be organised into lists of selections and wish lists. Orders can be placed directly, or workflows set up for centralised ordering through a "Master Account", responsible for reviewing and finalising orders. We'd be more than happy to give you detailed descriptions of all Acquisitions Management options on request.
The status of all orders can be viewed online in real time; authorised users can take advantage of our invoice archive to consult, download and print invoices.
