Follow the links above to discover what the library currently holds on these topics and include what we’ve bought this year. For example we bought new subject dictionaries for Sociology. You will find some of the latest material we bought in the 2018/19 academic year on October, November, December, January and February – April new resources lists. We’re in the process of adding further lists for you to cover material bought from April onwards so watch out for more lists coming soon.
Some of the topics you’ve suggested have so many items that we’ve restricted the results to a particular time period to make it more manageable for you. When you follow the link you’ll be able to adjust the search to a time period that suits you or add in more search words to drill down further.
In addition it’s worth noting you might want to try the search out on Discover to find journal articles. As for example topics like prevent policing are likely to have more current material available through academic journals. Here’s the prevent policing topic run as an advanced search with its results using the Advanced Search box “prevent” AND policing
