From the Suggestion Box: 
On the Library main page I cannot find Tropicat. Where and why have you hidden it? It seriously wastes my time!

Library Response: 

The Library launched a refreshed home page on 6 February 2012. The site was redeveloped after consultation and testing with JCU students. The home page uses less library terms  and has been designed to reflect four goals:
  1. Find knowledge and  academic resources (e.g. article, book or other library resource)
  2. Learn how to acquire an information skill (e.g. referencing)
  3. Connect to ICT resources and services (e.g.  mobiles )
  4. About the Library - who we are, what we do and how we can help you
You can search Tropicat directly by clicking Books, DVDs & more under the Find option.

The search box on the Library and Computing home page now searches One Search, the JCU Library's 'discovery layer'. We've labelled it 'Start Here' so that new clients will not have to ponder whether to search Tropicat, LibGuides, eJournals, databases or Research Online.
