We need your help!

We previously had a subscription to IEEE but it expired at the end of 2015.  We know that there’s loads of great content for us and that you like the Xplore platform.  However, we really need you to test out accessing IEEE content via LibrarySearch and let us know how you get on:

  • Do you find IEEE content is surfacing at the top of your results list?
  • Can you link through to the full-text easily?
  • What kind of search terms are you using?
  • Are you seeing lots of results for IEEE content?

Please send us your feedback – all is welcome, good and bad.  You can send it via Twitter, Facebook,  email us, tell your Academic Librarian, write it on the feedback walls in the Library.  We don’t mind how you let us know, but please do tell us what you think!

  • The streaming video platform offers great teaching tools at your fingertips
  • Over 200 videos available
  • Includes: Irvin Yalom, Albert Ellis, Joseph Wolpe, Richard Schwartz, Kay Jamison, Carl Rogers, Insoo Kim Berg, Sue Johnson (and many more!)

We’d love to hear from both staff and students – what do you think of this kind of resource?  All feedback welcome!
