E-resources trials

The Library regularly arranges trials to new resources, including databases. It's always worthwhile checking the list of current trials as there could be something available for a short period that is just what you are looking for. 

Search Library Resources

Use DiscoverEd to search the Library's collections and find books, ebooks, ejournal articles and more. Use EASE to sign into your account and manage loans, requests and fines.

Getting help

Are you feeling disheartened by your dissertation research? Not liking your literature review? You can contact me directly to book a 1:2:1 session in person, phone or online via Collaborate. We can look at the sources you have searched, and identify sources you may not have searched and talk about tips and tools to carry out a controlled and productive literature search.

If you need to contact us for help with any Library service please get in touch with the IS Helpdesk. There is also a copyright service for related enquiries and an online form if you would like to make a comment, complaint or suggestion.
