Getting started

Library confusion, 23/12/1952, by Sam Hood

We've got over 1.5 million print books in the library, 0.5 million ebooks, thousands of journals and hundreds of specialist databases. So if you're looking for information, you've come to the right place!

However, with so much available, don't get lost in the shelves. Start here to find the most useful resources to support your academic practice.

HE teaching resources from elsewhere

Major collections of educational resources available from elsewhere. We have tried to focus on resources which are open access and available for repurposing, but please check the terms and conditions of each resource.
