Library updates - June 2022

On the 28th June we upgrade our Library search, making searching for resources easier than ever! At the moment this will simply mean searching for e-resources will look at little different and hopefully provide a better experience- click here to find out more.  Soon you will be able to search for Southend print books as well as e-resources using this search, but the feature has been slightly delayed so keep using the Southend search for print until further notice!

Due to the planned switchover currently taking place, the laptop loans in The Learning Hub will be offline from today (23rd June) until Tuesday (28th June). Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The new library search is going live on 28th June. You can find out a lot more about how it's going to work and what you can look forward to here:
