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. Lists link directly to ebooks and articles in ejournals.  


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

Please see the Online Literature Searching page for advice about searching the databases.
