Getting started 

The best place to get started with searching for resources is your online reading list and Library Search 

Reading lists

Your online reading list can be found via your course moodle. Here is a short video with instructions on how to access and use your reading list.

Library Search

Library Search allows you to search the library’s collection of books, journals, databases, av materials, and special collections. You can search by keyword, or by specific titles, authors, and publications. 

You can choose to search everything including all print, electronic, AV, and special collections, as well as using filters to only search specific collections.  


You can watch a quick 4 minute video here which demonstrates how to use Library Search
