Introducing Talpa Search

: From 2 Jan to 16 Feb 2024, we are piloting the trial of automated document delivery service for staff and students.

Talpa Search is an experimental AI-powered library search. Talpa answers ‘what's that book?’ questions and can even find books by their colour or what's on the cover!


Try out these search terms:

  • business marketing book with blue cover
  • nonfiction book on strong women
  • astronaut stranded on Mars
  • thriller about man and missing wife


Try it yourself! Click the button below to start your search.
