Business English & Intercultural Communication

This is UCLan's Business English & Intercultural Communication library page.

For more help and guidance please contact your Faculty Librarians: Andrea Evans and Francesca Robinson


Search for books and ebooks on Library Search. It will tell you what we have in stock and where to find it. 

Sometimes there may only be a chapter on a specific topic rather than a whole book. To find those, you will need to use one of our ebook databases which allow you to search through the whole text of a book. We have several ebook collections but a good place to start would be Ebook Central.

Journals and Articles

If you have a reference for a particular journal article, or if you want to find out if we take a particular journal title, use the Journal Finder.

If the Library does not have the journal article you want, you can request a copy from the Inter-library Loan Service.
