Stella Search improvements

Stella Search has got even easier to use! Finding books or other items that form part of our Library Catalogue Only collection is now more straightforward, as you can use the new tab Books & More on the Library homepage or in Stella Search itself. In Stella, you can flick between the default All Results, Books & More, or Articles & More, without having to rerun your search.

The Books & More tab searches for our print books, e-books, journals, subject databases, theses, DVDs, printed music… and more. You can now sort by the title or author surname, in alphabetical order, to make it easier to find the one you want. It *doesn’t* search within the millions of articles we have access to through our subscriptions – that’s what the new Articles & More tab in Stella does.

Most of these options were always there – but a little hidden, in the “facet” tickboxes at the side of the results. Those are still there. Don’t like the tabs? The default search (All Results) works exactly as it always has, with books and articles together.
