DelphiS: Home

Getting started - the best way to use the basic features, and making the most of the rest

What is DelphiS?

DelphiS is a single interface which allows you to discover electronic and print items in the library's collection - which includes other academic resources that we have paid subscriptions to:

At present it searches WebCat, many of our databases, and most online journal articles.

DelphiS and Law

At present, DelphiS does not have access to some external Law resources.

Follow the links:

Newspaper Articles

DelphiS finds some newspaper articles, but for more comprehensive results go directly to the databases:

When do I use WebCat?

Use WebCat:

  • if you only want to find books in the Library's own print or e-stock
  • to find a specific book on a reading list
  • for digitised course collection resources
  • to place a hold
  • to request items from stack/interlibrary loan
  • to manage your Library account

How can I search for an ejournal ?

You can search for eJournals using the ‘eJournal Title Search’ tab within DelphiS.  Use this if you want to access an ejournal title quickly.

All journals are also listed on WebCat.  Select the ‘journal title’ field label (to right of quick search box) for best results.

To search for individual journal articles using author/article title details or on a specific topic, go directly to DelphiS.

Currently these items are not searched by DelphiS, so use WebCat to locate, and access full  text (VPN required off-campus)
