The Digital Library

Finding information

One of the key skills when studying at university is knowing where and how to find information.  The internet has made finding open access information easy but, when it comes to finding the quality academic sources required at university, you may be asked to pay for access or sign in via your institution.  Change the way you search for information by going to the library website before Google or by installing tools that help you find the resources you need. 

All courses have an Academic Subject Librarian that you can contact for assistance with how to access and use the library's resources.   In addition to this, there is lots of support material available.
