Subject Resources

Reading Lists

The simplest and quickest way to find good quality academic reading relevant to your lectures and assignments is to search for the online reading list using your module code. This will link you directly to eBooks and articles in eJournals as well as trustworthy websites.  These lists can also be accessed via SurreyLearn.


Subject databases are online searchable collections providing access to a range of information including journal articles, newspapers and trade papers. Some databases will link to the full text of articles, others will only provide the reference.  

Please ask your Information Skills Librarian for advice about searching databases.  


Reference management software

Many students and researchers find it useful to organise their bibliographic material using a reference management system. We recommend using RefWorks.
