A big welcome to all new and returning students! Once you've had a chance to settle in and started thinking about research for that first assignment or your dissertation, consider using a wider range of resources. There are books of course - once you have your reading list, check to see if any are available as ebooks (via Athens). Journals are also an essential part of academic research and again, many of these can be found online. The great benefit of using Athens is the ease in searching and finding information in a fraction of the time.

There are numerous videos and dvds covering a range of topics, that can be watched in the Library. We have collections of company reports, maps and newspapers. There are many more resources to be found online including market research reports, magazine articles and international newspapers.

As so many of these resources are online, it is essential to know how to utilise these effectively. Online resources workshops will be offered throughout termtime beginning 5th October. Times and days for these will be displayed on your notice boards. Just drop in, no need to book and we'll be able to help with your research query.
