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 the 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 is a good place to start as it searches across lots of different journals and will uncover articles in places you may not think to look.
If you need to locate journal articles on a particular topic you may need to use our journal databases. These provide a collection of titles across which you can search for relevant articles. The library subscribes to a large collection of databases and you can look on the Journal Finder list to see the full range. These include a range of multi-subject databases which are relevant to this area of study.
Other useful databases for Media and Technology are listed below:
Top Tip! Don't forget - should you find that we haven't got the full-text of an article that you would like to access (in print or electronic format) you can make a request through the Inter-Library Loan/Document Supply service.
Should you want to undertake a more thorough search for research materials/literature try searching the following abstract and indexing databases. These contain a large number of references from a significant number of subject areas. You will need to choose your search terms carefully to be sure of retrieving the best results. Generally you will only find the abstract or executive summary of articles within these databases. Conference papers are also available.
Look out for the ‘LinkSource’ icon or the UCLan logo in your search results lists within these databases as this tool will direct you to the full-text of the article if it's available within one of our subscribed services.
Nexis gives the text of articles only - it does not include photographs or formatting.
The Library subscribes to a range of other electronic resources, which are particularly relevant for business research.
