What is WebBridge?
WebBridge provides context sensitive links that allows you to find other related online resources.
For example WebBridge provides
- links from your search in the catalogue to additional resources in databases and Internet resources such as (Ebsco, Encyclopaedia Britannica and Amazon)
- links from the catalogue item records to find the particular items in the additional resources.
How do I use WebBridge?
Perform a search in the State Library catalogue
Click on the Other Resources button which is located on the right hand side of the screen.
Another window will open offering a list of additional resources and options that may provide further information on the search you conducted in the catalogue.
Select a link and the new resource will open in a new window using the same search criteria.
Why can't I link through to WebBridge resources from home?
Currently only visitors onsite at the State Library of Western Australia may access the additional resources provided by WebBridge and which are available via the Other Resources button in the catalogue. We are working towards providing access to these resources in the future.
Why is there only a limited number of additional resources available via WebBridge?
WebBridge is a new service and the State Library will gradually add more resources to WebBridge over the coming months.
Who do I contact if I am having problems with WebBridge?
A State Library of Western Australia Information Services Staff member is available to assist you with difficulties searching the library catalogue and using WebBridge.
