The Institution has recently invested in an upgrade to the Library catalogue, moving to a new dedicated server designed to provide a faster and more reliable service. The catalogue lists all publications held at Institution HQ and in the E-library. It is freely available 24/7 at https://istructe.cirqahosting.com . As part of the upgrade, some more user-friendly features, including book covers, have been introduced. This article provides a brief introduction to help you make the most of the new homepage.
