Books

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

Journal Finder provides details of our print journals and e-journals collections. Library Search will find specific articles from journals so is a good place to start, as it searches across thousands of different journals and will uncover articles in places you may not think to look.

You should then move on to more subject specific databases:

Top Tip! All of our e-journals subscriptions are listed in Journal Finder.   Search by journal title, (e.g. Selvedge) then follow the blue resource link, taking you to the full-text articles.
