What is this guide for?
This guide has been developed to help signpost useful information during the University closure. Although the physical libraries may be closed we are very much open online and this guide brings together a range of useful resources from across the Physical Sciences libraries in one handy place. The site itself is still evolving with new content added as it is made available so please check back frequently for the latest updates.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us and we will do our best to help.
Use the quick links below to jump straight to the information you need:
Essential information on how to access electronic resources such as ejournals and ebooks from home as well as other key sources of open information.
Key databases you can use including a summary of the most common physical sciences databases.
Contact details for libraries and librarians in the physical sciences as well as other ways you can reach out and get one-to-one help. Hint: there are many!
We are actively working on moving our research support, including training sessions online. This page contains resources on a range of research support topics and links to further information.
It's important to take care of both our physical and mental health during this period. This section contains advice on how to take time for yourself (including a useful section on keeping the kids entertained).
There are several places you can turn to get help. As well as the Physical Sciences Research Support Team many disciplines operate their own library. You can find their details in the Getting help tab or by using the quick links to their online guides below:
