Welcome to your world of information, knowledge, discovery and entertainment

Renew or search for items in the library catalogue 

You can search for items by author, title and keyword. There is also an option to refine your search if you find you are getting too many results.

The results screen will tell you which library has the item you want and where it can be found within that library.  The results will also tell you if the item is available for loan, and if not, when it is due to be returned to the library.
