    What are Zetoc, Copac and the Archives Hub?
  • 4. Zetoc
    “My time is everything, it’s at a premium, I would not have the ability to wade through journals in vastly diverse subjects like for example, fragrance chemistry. Zetocfixes this by doing all the work for me in that respect and without it I would not be able to maintain the scope of my journal searches.” Researcher/Lecturer, Entymology
    “I often go to Copac as the fastest and most efficient way to find where the resource I want is and also use it to find details of new resources that might be of use. I also use the subject keywords to look for related things.” Postgraduate student, Law
    Archives Hub
    “The Archives Hub searches across a broad range of archives, provides detailed collection and often item information, which is invaluable, and in addition, the direct details for contacting and visiting the archives, all in one place. This saves me time and makes my research more efficient.” Postgraduate Student, Medieval Studies
