You could be missing out on lots of things if you don’t sign in when you’re using Library Search. Imagine there’s a book you need that’s out on loan to someone else at the moment, so you want to request it. You find it in Library Search, but there’s no request link… (click on the picture to see a bigger version)
Click on the ‘Sign-in for more options’ link, sign in using your SHU username and password, and the request link will appear for you to click on.
You need to sign in to do some other things as well. Library Search can save a search for you; click on the ‘Save search’ link at the bottom left of the search results page. The link won’t appear at all though unless you’ve signed in first. You have to sign in to get access to electronic resources as well.
OK, so let’s say you’re convinced of the need to sign in. Here’s how to do it.
If you’re on the Library Gateway, click on the ‘My Library Account’ link in the top, right-hand corner, enter your login details, and you’re signed into Library Search.
If you’ve done a search already and you’re on the results page, click on the ‘Students and staff’ sign in link at the top of the page.
Now you can enjoy all the benefits of Library Search. Hurray!
