Resource of the Week - DISCOVER

Need to research a topic for your assignment? Want to read beyond the textbooks and find articles from quality journals? Try DISCOVER  

What is it?
DISCOVER is a “Unified Resource Discovery” tool, unified because entering your search terms once in a simple Google type box allows you to search across many thousands of journals and our key academic databases. (For more detail on exactly what DISCOVER searches see here) You can search DISCOVER directly from the Library Home page, or search a subject specific group of databases via our LibGuides pages  

Why use it?
DISCOVER will help you to find quality sources for your assignments quickly and easily. Many of your results will appear with a PDF icon so you can open up the article straight away, but you can also use the  "is is @ Liverpool" tool to access the full text of the article.
