Getting Started

Not sure where to start?

Have a look at our How To... page for our three part tutorial on getting started with library research. 

The Starting Your Research in Media and Communications tutorial (Part 2) has examples of searches related to Journalism, such as media and film, but the advice is relevant for all Arts subjects.

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

Current newspapers and magazines

You can access thousands of current titles via the following Roehampton subscriptions:

Individual Titles

Current subscriptions (not available via the above):

Newspaper and magazine archives

Search these specialist databases to find journal articles, book chapters and other academic research papers in your subject. Most provide the full PDF text, but sometimes there may be just brief details (citation and abstract) of the articles. Click the Full Text Finder button to see if  you can access the full text via our ejournals;  if not, you can order it free via Interlibrary Loan.
