Books

Search for books and ebooks on the Library Catalogue. 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.

You may also want to look at the Oxford Music Collection which has several titles on performing arts, music theatre etc.

Journals and Articles

Finding the full-text of journal articles

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.

Journal Finder will tell you whether we have a particular journal electronically or in print.
