International Development: Home



The Library building has now closed and all of our staff and services have shifted online. Please email me if you need some help. The Library's Covid-19 FAQ has information about the closure and our new remote access guide will provide more detailed information to support remote access to Library resources. Many publishers are opening up substantial amounts of free content for the next 2-3 months to support your research and studies and we are in the process of setting up access to these resources, many of which will be coming online this week. Some of these resources will be flagged on the remote access guide; others on relevant subject guides and in the Database A-Z. We will also be providing information via the UEA Library Twitter feed.

Need help in writing your latest assignment? Take a look at our new First Assignment and beyond study guide we have created with the Learning Enhancement Team.


I've put together this guide to highlight resources and support that will help you as you study International Development here at UEA. Please contact me if you need some further help - or attend one of my regular drop-in sessions.

COVID-19 Resources

These resources have been temporarily extended.  Please see our remote access guide for further information and guidance.
