Construct Catalogue Search URL

This tool may no longer be necessary

This tool constructs a search link for our previous catalogue, replaced by the BiblioCommons catalogue in 2012. Searches made using this tool will continue to work, however as addresses in the BiblioCommons catalogue are persistent you may prefer to use that.

Enter your search terms below and then click Construct URL button below - URL will display here.


  • Remove punctuation from your search terms BEFORE constructing the URL as some punctuation may be interpreted unexpectedly by Web2 and upset your search.
  • Test your new URL by clicking on the link before sending it to anyone or adding it to a document.
  • Searches on ISBNs should not use a qualifier.

No qualifiers
