We are bringing in a new library search and a few other exciting changes. Week by week, we'll be posting more information about the library search and what you can expect in the coming months and when it is finally launched. So make sure to pop by every week to learn what the library is doing to improve its search and to make your library experience better.

Find out more about the new library search.

Searches print books located in The Forum library at Southend. Southend students should use "Search Library" for journals, articles, and ebooks.
