Accessing Electronic Resources: How to access resources

Where to start

One of the most important things to consider is that when we say "resources", we might be talking about journals, books or databases. Electronic resources are resources that are available online: there is no difference in the academic suitability of an electronic resource compared to a print resource. The benefit of using electronic resources is that they are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Your first port of call for finding out which the best resources are for your subject is to visit the Subject Guide for your course. For further help, contact your Subject Librarian whose contact details you will find on the relevant Subject Guide.
