Research guides

Our guides contain key resources on selected subjects that will help get you started on your research. There are two main types of guide:

  • Print resources guides which contain catalogue search tips and selected print works; and
  • Selected websites guides which list freely available websites.

For enhanced subject access to all our electronic resources including full-text databases, indexes, e-journals and websites, go to eResources.
