Searching for information

The main way to search for books, journal articles and more is by using the library's search page.

The search page uses Summon, a university version of Google, to search for anything the library has access to, and more!  From the search page you can specify what kind of content you want to look for i.e. articles or books, and make modifications to your search and the type of content you want once you have some results back.  It's an easy way to find lots of high quality information for your assignments.

However, sometimes Summon isn't enough - so the resources linked to on this page are dedicated specialist resources that may help you in your studies.
