Remember if you need help in writing an assignment take a look at our First Assignment and beyond study guide we have created with the Learning Enhancement Team.
Once you start researching independently for your assignments you will need go beyond your reading list and search across the library collection of books, articles and other resources using library search.(Find out more about books, articles and other material formats in your 'First assignment' tool)
Library Search is your main way into books and articles held by the Library, with A-Z Databases giving you access to further specialist resources to explore.
The following videos will show you how to get started looking up books, E-books and online articles in library search
Finding your books and articles via library search will ensure you are discovering materials that you have access to. However, it is also worthwhile downloading the Library access browser plug in which will alert you to your access options should you find reading materials whilst browsing online.
There is more information on finding and using your reading lists and searching for materials in the Finding your sources section of your Fist assignment tool.
The vast majority of our e-resources are available off campus to all current staff and students and whilst there are a few resources that aren’t available this will be due to licencing restrictions.
