Getting Started

Not sure where to start?

Have a look at our How To... page for our three part tutorial on getting started with your research. The Starting Your Research tutorial is tailored to your School/Department. 

You will also find guidance on searching Library databases, provided by some of our database providers.

 

Full Text Databases generally provide the pdf for articles in your results list. However these databases also contain records of articles published elsewhere. You may be able to access these articles by clicking the Full Text Finder button, provided we have a subscription to the journal they are in.

The Library also subscribes to number of large archive collections that are not freely available online. These can be found on the other pages in this guide.
