As teaching has moved online, you’re likely to be studying off-campus. This is the time to make the most of the library’s online resources. Here’s how.

eBooks and MMR reading lists
If you’re new to using eBooks you’ll find all My Module Resources reading lists will have eBooks listed, you can use the filter button on the toolbar to sift out the eBooks. This handy guide explains how to find eBooks on the library catalogue and read them online/download them. Or, if you prefer this video will take you through step by step.

Library eResources are available to access off-campus 24/7


To find ejournals use our essential guide to finding articles on Library Search (formerly known as Discover) or video to show you how to access them. This Tips and Tricks for Advanced Searches guide gives you a toolkit of techniques

which you can use to make your search results more precise and comprehensive.

If you already know the details of the article you want, go to slide 6 of the ejournal essential guide where it says: “If you’ve got the full bibliographic details” near the top of the page.

We also have a trial of the Health Research Premium Collection until 31st May, which holds a range of ejournals and ebooks. If you use it, please give us feedback. More information on the trial is here.
