Increased mobile access to library resources

During the mid-semester break (on Friday 26th April ) we upgraded our LibrarySearch software (Primo) to provide better access to mobile users. LibrarySearch now automatically detects the size of your device's screen and if the size of the screen width is very narrow it will display a mobile view of LibrarySearch that is more suitable for a small screen size. The mobile view of LibrarySearch is a simpler view with only one search option which searches the catalogue only. This search covers books and ebooks as well as journal titles and other items on our shelves but does not include articles. 

To use the full version of LibrarySearch with all its options just turn your device on its side (horizontally) so the size of the screen width is increased. OR if you prefer the simpler mobile view even with a wider screen you can force this by clicking the "Mobile" link in the footer.

Please contact our electronic services team at libadmin@unitec.ac.nz if you have any questions or comments about this change.
