It is not always possible to find answers to academic questions in the media that are physically available in the University Library. In some cases, it will be necessary to search further afield, in other words outside the University Library.
Internet sources, such as databases and document delivery services, are available to enable you to find answers to your questions. A charge is levied for access to certain Internet sources although access is sometimes covered by campus licences.
In addition to the keywords on the left, the following links may also be helpful:
