Introduction to InfoKat Discovery

InfoKat Discovery can be a good place to start your research, as you can search for all types of information there (articles, books, and much more).

If you click on Advanced Search search to the right of the search box, you can search InfoKat Discovery as the "Library Catalog." This will help you find library materials UK owns, such as books, videos, maps, music, and much more.
