Q. Why do e-books and other e-resources that we don't have access to appear in the Library Search results?
As well as providing a portal to accessing our collections, the Global Search tab on Library Search is also a way to discover other content that may be useful.
Where we don't have access, we may be able to source these through purchase or inter library loan. For more information, see our 'What should I do if Queen Mary Library doesn't have the item I am looking for?' FAQ.
When using Library Search you can refine your results so that you only see items which the Library provides access to by selecting the 'Full Text' filter.
