USIU-Africa Library introduces LibFind

By Azenath Ateka

USIU Africa library has announced that it has moved all users to a new, smarter search interface called USIULibfind. This improved functionally helps users to find books, journal articles, AVs material in a fast and easy manner. In the past, to find it, users had to search the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC), then Emerald, then EbscoHost, then Jstor. With USIULibFind, users do not have to visit each of the 52 databases to find information. USIULibFind helps users find content based key words, and browses PsychArticles, Sage, Taylor & Francis, Oxford, Cambridge Journals and all the other 48 databases with peer-reviewed scholarly content, looking for what matches the key words and gives ‘interfiled’ results.

As a discovery tool, USIULibFind makes it possible to get to the specific, most relevant item because it uses filters. With USIULibFind, users can filter search results along Fulltext, Subject, Source Type, Publisher, Journal Title, Geography, Language…brief, it allows specificity and relevance.
