Catalogue [more...]

The catalogue tells you what we have in the library collection. It will give you the title, author and call number of a book. It will also give you the title of the journals we hold, but not the contents inside the journal.

We also have a collection of e-books accessible through our catalogue. E-books have their content available in full text online.

Other resources accessible through our catalogue include exam papers and material on Course Reserve.

The catalogue is an excellent place to start looking for material for your research.

Journal Databases [more...]

Our databases are an excellent source of information. They index the contents of many different journals, and often provide full text access to articles. We have a range of databases that cover all different subjects but searching skills can be transferred from one database to another.

Internet [more...]

The internet can be an excellent source of information. Be careful to evaluate the information you find on the Web. Some information will be good and reliable. Other information can be biased or incorrect.
