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 Library research. The Starting Your Research in MCL tutorial (Part 2) is tailored to School of Arts subjects including media.  

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


Essential Resources

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 usually order it free via Interlibrary Loan.
