Now Access OCtopus Search from Library Catalogue

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

A new tab has been added to the Voyager library catalogue that is called ‘Search Using Octopus’. Clicking on the tab will take you directly to the OCtopus search engine, rather than having to return to the Library home page to run a search with OCtopus.

The Library Catalogue provides access to books (both print and online), media (DVDs, streaming videos), and magazines and journals. OCtopus provides access to the Library’s books (print and e-books), media, journals, individual journal articles, magazine articles, and more.
