Search our Collections Search our Collections

Library Search  Library Search is the one-stop shop for searching all of our collections - physical and electronic. It attempts to pull in data from every database we have access to, and is a good place to start a search.
Find Databases The Library subscribes to many databases, and to get the best results you'll need to search subject-specific databases individually (rather than through Library Search).
Find E‑Journals Each database we subscribe to includes content from many different journals. If you want to look at articles from just one, use the Find E-journals tool to see which journals we have access to.


More information on how to navigate these tools can be found in our library search guide.

The reading & writing up process The reading & writing up process

Researching and writing at university is a far more independent process than at school or college. You will need to take responsibility for selecting and finding your own material to read, this may take time to get used to but should become an exciting and rewarding process. This blog will help you work through some of the key stages.
