How do I access the UWTSD library?

Modified on Wed, 28 Jul 2021 at 03:26 PM

Students studying on courses with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David have access to both the Learna Library and the EBSCO database. In order to access EBSCO, please log in to your Moodle account and navigate to the Library-UWTSD (via the 'My Course' link in the blue navigation bar, found on the left-hand side of your Moodle dashboard). 

Click the EBSCO logo to navigate to the library. The library database will open up in a new window, you will not need to log-in to use this service as your details are provided via logging in to the Moodle platform. 

Make a selection of which databases to search in, or click the box to select all databases. Then click the yellow 'continue' button. 

The library search page will then load. Enter keywords or phrases for your search into the search bar and use the green 'search' button to begin the look-up. 

The results of your library search will appear as a 'Results List'. You are able to sort this list by the following criteria: Relevance, Date Newest, Date Oldest, Source, Author. By 'Relevance' of the search term is the default list order. 

Down the left-hand side of the results page, there are features which allow the results to be restricted to certain filters, such as: full texts, journals, peer-reviewed journals etc. 

It is highly advised to ensure you select 'Full Text' so that you are able to directly access and/or download a whole text that you are looking for, rather than just an extract or review, for instance.
