Every research project is unique so we recommend contacting your Academic Subject Librarian to discuss your research needs and the assistance we can offer.
Our subject guides give a general overview of the resources available in broad subject areas and list the databases and useful websites for your subject area. They also provide contact details for all librarians.
If your question falls within more than one discipline, or you are not sure who to contact, please email us and your enquiry will be referred to the appropriate person.
If you need a book, chapter, journal article, or conference paper that we don't have access to we can try and obtain a copy from another library for you.
The inter-library loan service is free for University of Lincoln staff and students and there is no limit on the number of requests you can make.
The University of Lincoln participates in the Sconul Access Scheme, offering our staff and students access to hundreds of university libraries all around the UK.
To make use of this service you will need to register with Sconul Access and specify which institutions you would like to visit.
After registration you'll receive   email notifications to confirm your application, when it has been approved and details of how to access the institution you have applied to.
If there's a book that you would like for your research that is not currently in the Library's collection but you feel that it would be a useful addition, you can recommend a copy for purchase.
If you wish to publish an OA (Open access ) article please contact Research & Enterprise.
