Books

Search for books and ebooks using 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.

Specific reference books which might be useful include:

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 using the Inter-library loan Service.
