Top tip #2 Start with our Subject guides

If you want to find good quality, scholarly information on a particular topic, but don’t know where to start – have a look at the Library’s Subject guides.  The guides are put together by subject Liaison Librarians who really know their stuff and they point you in the right direction to find the best databases, journals and ebooks, and much, much more for a particular subject area.  You’ll find a link to the Subject guides on our website.
