Search for resources


Multisearch is the library's search engine.  It provides a 'Google-like' way to find many of UHI Libraries' print and online resources at the same time.  The process of finding information from both the physical and online collections has become so much simpler.

With just one search you can find print books, ebooks, newspaper articles, ejournal articles, conference proceedings and more.  The results are listed in order of relevance to your search and you can filter and focus your search by publication format, date, location, language etc.

Click on the Multisearch title above to start searching.

NEW SERVICE Click and Collect

Click and Collect

Due to Covid-19 we are currently not permitting the browsing of books on the shelves. We have therefore introduced a new system for borrowing books called Click and Collect. This service is currently for Term 1 but may be extended longer. 

To make use of this service please check the catalogue, or Multisearch, for resource availability and complete the online form (you can also use the button below). Alternatively you can email requests to For Photo of bookseach resource we need to know the title; first author name or editor name; publication year or edition. Please use your college / UHI email so we can identify you.

Book requests will be processed as soon as possible and you will be notified by email when you can collect the books.   

Please note that face-coverings MUST be worn in the Library when you are collecting your books.
  • If you are a distance learning student please see the information on our Postal Loan Service
