The following databases provide details of relevant journal articles (usually including an abstract) and in some cases may also provide a link to the article itself.

To find out if the Library stocks a particular journal title, search our A-Z List of Journals.

Box of Broadcasts

Box of Broadcasts (also known as BoB) is an archive of free-to-air TV and radio programmes available to you through the University of Huddersfield Library subscription.  You can choose to watch previously recorded programmes, request future programmes and save lists of programmes for your learning, teaching or research.

Click on the tabs above for a series of instructional videos to take you through the basics of using Box of Broadcasts.

Click on this link to go direct to BoB. You can also access it from the A-Z list of electronic resources, and find BoB under the letter B.

You will be prompted to log in with your University login and password. The first time you access BoB, it will ask you to register your university email address (undergraduates and postgraduate taught students = u1234567@unimail.hud.ac.uk). You will need to confirm your address by checking your email and clicking on the link provided.

 

Here's a useful video from Learning on Demand who run Box of Broadcasts.

 

This short video shows you how to request TV and radio programmes to be recorded.

Box of Broadcasts provides extensive help, including videos, from their website.
