Welcome to the Social Policy subject guide - your guide to using the library resources, services and facilities for your subject.
This Library Services page will be kept up to date with information about access to the library collections, online access to teaching resources and how to get further help.
DiscoverEd is the library's discovery tool and library catalogue. Use it to search for books, journals, articles, databases, online access and much more. You can find a simple guide we've made for getting started with DiscoverEd here (Microsoft Sway).
Other useful help pages from our website include:
Don't forget that you can ask the Library Helpdesk staff for advice and assistance.
The Main Library holds the majority of books for Social Policy. Most of these books are on the 2nd floor or in the HUB Collection on the ground floor.
Resource Lists are online reading lists that can signpost you to key reading materials. Some of your courses may have a Resource List embedded in the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) but you can also access them directly. Full details are available on the Resource Lists: Information for Students webpage.
Other subject guides can be a useful source of ideas and information.
A full list of subject guides is available on the university website.
The Library provides access to many e-resources, but we also provide lots of other services and support for students on online learning programmes.
