OpenAIR resources now on the library catalogue

In order to expand the number of ways in which people can discover the open access resources archived on OpenAIR (a database of research produced by RGU’s own academics), we have now enabled searches on the library catalogue to display results from OpenAIR.

When searching for material exclusively from OpenAIR through the library catalogue, simply do the following:

1. Enter your search term in the ‘Find Books and Articles’ search on the catalogue.

2. Select the ‘Articles’ tab on the results page (this will display all material from OpenAIR, not just journal articles).

3. Locate the ‘Content Provider’ filter on the right-hand side of the screen (it’s near the bottom). Select ‘OpenAIR@RGU’ from the list of content providers.

4. Now the only results displayed for your search will be those available on OpenAIR. Clicking on ‘View Content’ will take you through to the record on OpenAIR, where you can view the full text.
