Our resources


You can find all our print books and eBooks via our Library Search which can be accessed on this page. Many of our books are available as eBooks which can be accessed online from anywhere. See our eBooks guide for more detail on using these. For print books Library Search will show the Library, shelf location, the loan period.  If the book is already on loan you can request it .

You may also have an online reading list for your module which will also link you directly to the details of the book in library search. 


Most journals that we subscribe to are available electronically, although we have a small reference only collection of printed journals. You can search our electronic journal articles via the Library Search.To see which journals we subscribe to go to journals by title

Maybe you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by the vast amount of information suddenly available to you? 

In our Information Literacy guide we'll point you to useful resources and strategies to help you navigate with ease. It will help sharpen your skills in evaluating, accessing and using information from different sources - especially useful if your tutor has indicated your sources need to be "more academic".

Learn how to spot top quality and reliable sources, making well-informed choices and developing critical thinking skills.
