The Digital Library

The Digital Library provides access to resources in the Library's collections which are available electronically. The collection includes:

  • DISCOVER, which allows you to search most of the electronic resources and the library catalogue simultaneously (see this list for information on databases not covered)
  • 100,000+ electronic journals (ejournals)
  • 100+ databases supporting the subject areas of the university's curriculum
  • around 30,000 electronic books (ebooks)
  • University past examination papers since 1999
  • undergraduate and taught post graduate dissertations
  • PhD theses via the University's repository.

The Digital Library means you have access to key resources to support your learning 24/7, it doesn't matter where you are - at University, at home, or overseas, articles, books and databases are just a click away.

We will post news and updates about Digital Library resources to the Digital Library blog.
