Searching Staff Publications Online

Simple search

The search box at the top of the Staff Publications Online site allows you to quickly search the repository by using keywords. It will look for your keywords in the author name, title, abstract, full text and date. Quick searching can sometimes bring up unexpected or less relevant results, so you might prefer to use the advanced search option.

Advanced search

For a more detailed search, you can choose the advanced search option on Staff Publications Online. A link for this sits under the simple search box. You can specify which fields to search, subjects, item types and more. This means, for example, you could search for all the items by a particular author published in a specific journal.

Search results

Results can be ordered by relevance, author name, title or year. You’ll see the message ‘Full text available’ for items that can be accessed from the repository. Open access material will not require a Shibboleth login to view or download it, but the item may not be the final published version.

Audio and video clips will often have a link to the clip on Box of Broadcasts, so you’ll need your Shibboleth login to watch or listen. If a book, chapter or journal is part of the library collection you will also find a link​ that will take you to the publication via Shibboleth but you don’t need your login to search the repository.​
