Search site: an easy way to find a page that mentions something you’re interested in, e.g. “Referencing”, or “Dyslexia”
NB “Search Discovery” will take you to the Library catalogue. We have written some tips on how to use this or just ask us and we will help you.
Filter resources by course or type
Publications can now be filtered by type (journal or magazine), by course (very handy!), or by status (archived / current / open access). Have a look at resources for other courses too, you might find something unexpected.
Online resources can be filtered by “type” (e.g. ebook) or course. Really handy for finding which resources are specifically recommended for you and your course.
Don’t worry if you’re not sure how these filters work, just ask us, we love answering your questions!
We are also running a virtual helpdesk, so please do feel free to ask us anything. We can email or ring you back, or call / video call you via Teams, whichever you prefer.
We have 200,000+ ebooks that you can read from anywhere, and a lot of you have said that you find ebooks easier to use, particularly if you’re dyslexic. We’ve written a guide to finding ebooks, as well as some tips and tricks to getting the most out of them, e.g. searching with an ebook for an artist or keyword – this will save you loads of time!
Below are some e-bookshelves that we put together that we thought would be useful to new and returning students. Simply click a bookshelf to access the ebooks, or learn more about our ebooks here.
