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 location, the loan period and 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 articles within journals that we subscribe to are available electronically, although we have a small reference only collection of printed journals.  You can find journal articles via the library search Summon or via some of our online databases on our eresources a-z. To see if we take a journal title electronically go to journals by title
