Help with searching for information

Struggling to find information for your assignments or research?

You may find the help you need in these subject guides, but if you need more support, get in touch with a librarian at the Help Centre on floor 4 of the library.

Can't make it into the library? Then contact your subject librarian. If your question can't be answered by email or phone, you may need to book an appointment in advance.

There are many specialist resources linked to from these pages, but we also have a more comprehensive list available.

Social Media

What if we don't stock what you need?

Have you searched all our resources, but can't find the full text?

You can apply for an inter library loan, where we try to borrow that item from another library on your behalf.

Or perhaps you know another university library where it is available, or just want to visit another library because it is closer to home?

If so, you can use other libraries through the SCONUL Access Scheme.
