A Guide to WebBridge

WebBridge is a tool that can be used in two ways. Firstly it is
able to link from a reference in a database to the
full-text of that article in another database. This makes it
easier for you to move from a reference to reading the
WebBridge has also been set up to link from in the library
catalogue. When you search for any resource you will have the
option to view it in other library catalogues and if you are
looking at book titles you will have the option to also locate
these in an online bookshop.
The library is developing WebBridge and we will gradually be
setting up links between more databases and fulltext resources in
the coming months.
How do I use WebBridge?
It is very easy to use. When you are searching for articles in
databases simply look for the Find at Hull button.
A window will display giving you the option to link to the
fulltext article if it is available. Not all resources have yet
been set up with WebBridge so if there are no links to the fulltext
article you will see an option to search the library
In the library catalogue click the Other Resources
This will present the option of searching across COPAC, a
catalogue comprising of major university and national libraries
catalogues in the UK and Ireland including the British Library
catalogue, and if you are looking at a book title which has an ISBN
you will also have the option to search for it in the Waterstones
