Finding materials


Books, journals, articles, databases, DVDs, microfilm, theses.

The Library Catalogue or Summon should be your starting point to check if the book, journal or other material you need is available.


If you only want to search for journals search the A-Z of Journals. If you only want print journals there is a bound list at the Issue Desk giving the titles and the locations in the library.

Databases and Articles

Summon will cross-search selected databases for articles. As not all databases are listed you should search the Library Databases pages for individual databases or subject lists.
