Federated Search

Now you can search all electronic databases and journals available through your library in one click!

We proudly present federated search facilities to all our library users.

Federated search is an information retrieval technology that allows the simultaneous search of multiple searchable resources. A user makes a single query request which is distributed to the search engines participating in the federation.

For example,
if you key in faculty library collaboration it will search the phrase at once in all the databases available through our library; JSTOR, Research4Life, Taylor & Francis, Emerald and Oxford University Press.
* Last 3 databases through Consortium of Sri Lankan Academic Libraries (CONSAL).

You can use this facility for simple search and for advanced searching you may go to individual databases.
