The new site aims to provide library users with seamless access to a growing collection of subscribed electronic resources. It also has a redesigned help section, covering journal and database access for on and off campus users.

In the advanced CrossSearch interface, multiple subject areas or specific resources can be searched at once. Users can order results with relevancy ranking and clustering options, then view citations and full text in the original native interface.

CrossSearch is available direct within the Cambridge domain(including the computers in the Medical Library's Wolfson Room. External (off campus) access is offered to University staff and students via their Raven username and password.
