Our Library

The Seeley Historical Library

The Seeley is the library for the Faculty of History. As a primarily undergraduate library, the Seeley aims to hold a copy of all items on relevant reading lists and therefore specialises in areas that are deemed important by the academic community.

See our library website for further information, including visiting the library and opening times.

Using Journal Articles

If you're looking for a specific item, the easiest way to track it down is by using the library catalogue, iDiscover. Type a few words from the article's title into the search box. If the article is available online (and many of them are) then you should be able to get to it directly by clicking 'Full text available'. If it isn't online, then iDiscover will tell you where copies of the print journal can be found.

If you're looking for articles on a given topic, add a few keywords to the search box on iDiscover. Be careful with your search terms, and try synonyms if you're not getting the results you hoped for.
