The easiest way to track down a specific item is by searching iDiscover.
See our list of recommended resources for students and researchers for more tailored literature search advice.
If you need journal articles, conference papers, books, reports or other items that cannot be found in any of the University libraries, we can obtain a photocopy or a loan from the British Library, or other UK institutions.
These cost between £10 and £15 per Inter Library Loan, but members of the department can make 10 requests per academic year, free of charge. 
If you want to request an item as an inter library loan, please email us at
