Have a look at our How To... page for our three part tutorial on conducting library research. The Starting Your Research in MCL tutorial (Part 2) has examples of searches related to education, media, linguistics and film, but the advice is relevant for all subjects.
You will also find guidance on searching Library databases, from some of our database providers.
Search these specialist databases to find journal articles, book chapters and other academic research papers in your subject.
Most provide the full text, but sometimes just brief details (citation and abstract) of the articles. Click on Search for Full Text@ Roehampton to see if you can access the article via our subscriptions; if not, you can (usually) order it free via Interlibrary Loan.
You can also access the past archives of several titles - find them via our A-Z Database list.
Films: See the Film subject guide for a list of good sources of free online films.
