Resource Discovery

Collecting material for your research project is more effective when you have a plan of how and where you are going to get the information.  This way you can identify potential barriers/problems and understand the time frames in which you’ll work. The above tabs provide links to different forms of information.

Creating a search strategy is a great tip when starting with a literature review. It ensures you cover all all search terms and don't miss any key resources.

Using other libraries

Books or journals not available at Hull or Scarborough may be obtained through the Inter Library Loans Service. At other times you may wish to visit other libraries in person.

SCONUL Access is a scheme granting borrowing privileges at higher education libraries in the UK and Ireland. For instructions on how to sign up, see the SCONUL Access helpsheet.

You can also become a member of the British Library. Information is available on how to register in the British Library's Help for Researchers.

The following is a list of library catalogues that may prove a good starting point for looking elsewhere and seeing which libraries hold the books you would like to view.
