LibrarySearchDiscovery: we want your views!

LibrarySearch Discovery has provided access to 50 million+ curated Open Access resources over the last six months as part of a pilot scheme running this year.

In addition to the extensive collections already available from University of Kent libraries, this should make it easier than ever to find the right information for an assignment or research project.

We want to know how useful these Open Access resources are to your work or study though as we near the end of this scheme.

What is Open Access?

Open Access (OA) resources are freely available, digital content from around the globe. They are part of a wider ‘open’ movement to encourage the free exchange of knowledge and resources to widen access and encourage creativity.



Some Open Access resources are discoverable through search engines such as Google Scholar but these are not necesarily quality checked or accessible to you.

By delivering Open Access resources in LibrarySearch  you can potentially find everything you need in the one place and easily accessible.
