Your subject-specific guide to library resources.

Every subject has unique and specialist types of information that add rigour and interest to research.  Usually, you’ll need to look beyond Library Search for these information types; some are accessed via specialist databases, while others are available online via websites, social media or streaming platforms.

We’ve picked out some key resources for your subject here but you might like to explore our Resource Guides for more resources on different information types.
