Search TCD library catalogue from your URL bar

Using Google Chrome, it’s possible to search the TCD library catalogue by typing your directly into the URL bar.

Click the wrench icon, head to Preferences…, click Manage Search Engines… Then, add a new search engine titled TCD Catalogue (or similar), choose a short memorable keyword (I use ‘lib’) and copy and paste the following URL into the rightmost form field (saving your changes):

http://stella.catalogue.tcd.ie/iii/encore/search/C__S%s__Orightresult__U1?lang=eng&suite=cobalt

Now, in any new window or tab, type your keyword into the URL bar, hit tab, type your search terms and hit enter!
