In terms of your reading, if you're not quite sure where to start, start with your reading list.
Most modules will have a reading list; some highlighting the key texts for that module, others detailing weekly readings. To find your list, navigate to your module in MyLearningSpace and follow the Reading List tile. Or, MyLists will take you to all available reading lists for modules you're enrolled on.

Beyond your reading list
If you want to search beyond your reading list, start with LibrarySearch above. Alternatively, some subject areas will require you to search for a specific type of information eg legal content or market research, or you may want to conduct a more comprehensive search within a particular database. If you are unsure which database or collection to use, our Subject Guides highlight the key resources for your subject area, or our A-Z lists all of our online collections.
We've also highlighted some of the key open access resources available.
When thinking about searching for literature, it might be beneficial first to think about what you're looking for eg articles, statistics etc, or where you're likely to find this information? The tiles below split that process up for you and offer advice on what to do.
