Searching for journal articles

You can use library search  to see whether we have access to a particular journal. If you have a topic interest in mind we recommend searching within our databases to search across many journals at the same time.

Books and ebooks

If you type your key word(s) into the Library Search, you will be able to find books and ebooks that match your search term(s). By looking at the shelf marks you can identify the section of books that generally covers that area. However, this is just a general guide. Books could be at many different shelf marks so it is always advisable to use the library search to find items. On the 1st floor, next to the library enquiry desk, you can find the Artists Section. The books are arranged alphabetically by the artist's surname.
