Search for books and ebooks on the 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 ebrary.
The Library Search will tell you which print journals we have in stock whilst Journal Finder provides details of our e-journals. However, neither of them will tell you which articles are in each journal: for that, you’ll need to use one of our databases.
Library Search and ProQuest Central are good places to start as they search across lots of different journals and will uncover articles in places you may not think to look.
The Library has a separate collection of feature films on DVD classified at 791.43, and shelved on a ring unit on the 1st Floor. You will also find popular television series, such as "Hill Street Blues" or "The Sopranos", on the 1st Floor ring unit, classified at 791.45. For film documentaries on particular subjects you will need to look on the library search , as these will be shelved together with the books on the subject.
Should you want to undertake a more thorough search for research materials/literature, try searching the following abstract and indexing databases. Unlike our other databases, generally you will only find the abstract or executive summary of articles within these databases. Conference papers are also available too.
Top Tip! To search across a collection of the newspaper archives that the library holds use Artemis Primary Sources. From here you will be able to cross search the British Newspapers 1600-1900, 19th century UK Periodicals, the Economist Historical Archive, Illustrated London News Historical Archive, Daily Mail, and the Times Digital Archive.
