Our top tips if you can’t find what you need in the Library.
If we don't have it here
- Try Google Scholar
Google Scholar includes links to freely available PDFs and alternate versions of articles.
- Search institutional repositories
If the article you need was written by someone at a university, they might have placed a copy in their institutional repository. Look at their website for more details.
- Visit other libraries
You can access items at other libraries. Apply to the Library for a SCONUL Access card so that you can access other UK university libraries or visit the British Library at Boston Spa. Book a place on our free weekly minibus.
- Apply for it using our free Interlending Service
We can source articles and books from elsewhere.
- Contact your Academic Liaison Librarian
