More resources than ever before

Students working at laptopsWe realise that study is not limited to formal library work but can instead expand to fill the cracks in your day and that you therefore want to be able to read and study wherever you can, so we have done all we can to make our information resources available everywhere we can over the internet, including making many of our most popular ebooks downloadable so you can read them even without an internet connection.

Our online resource collection has increased every year to ensure as much of what you need is at your fingertips whenever you want it.  We now offer around 650,000 ebooks and over 66,000 journals brought together through powerful search tools including the Discovery Service to make them easier and quicker to find.

We are also close to being able now to offer you everything on your reading lists in formats that you can access while for those few specialised things you might need for your research that we are unable to find, you can request journal articles and book chapters delivered to your email inbox within days of completing a simple online form.

The joy of reading lists

Have you reached your reading with a single click? Following a sustained effort working closely with your lecturers, the vast majority of units now have online reading lists that link directly to the things you lecturer most wants you to read, so you can spend your time reading rather than trying to find what you need to read.  Just click the blue buttons on the right for the full text of anything online linked to your reading list.  look for your online reading lists in Moodle or click here and search for your unit code or title.
