See you in the subject pages

Your subject pages guide you from first steps to carrying out expert in-depth research, explaining everything you need to know in simple steps. All you need to is find your page – your friendly neighbourhood librarian can help here – stop by the library skills drop-in or chat to us online. Somewhere in your subject pages, you will find lists of the specialist resources most useful for your topic, from searchable newspaper scans to image databases, moving video clips for animation students to architectural blueprints and systematic reviews of the best clinical evidence in healthcare. Often the fastest way to find specialised databases on a topic, your subject page groups eresources by topic and explains how they are useful.

More than meets the eye

Click each blue box in turn (or tap on mobile devices) to expand a section or subsection. Since scrolling is so 1990s, most of the page content lives on pages that appear when you ask for them by tapping their heading box. This makes it easier to go straight to what you need to read. When you’re done with it, click on it again to collapse it back down or click on another heading box to carry on exploring.

You can use any subject page. Sometimes this can be really helpful if your subject page lacks the specific something you need for a particular project. Don’t limit yourself to one subject page if another might have something useful for you.

Library staff can help!

Just because you have a subject page does not mean you can’t ask for expert advice! Every subject page comes with the contact details for your subject team, who can help with your in-depth subject enquiries. For general help choosing the best resources for your subject and getting the most from those eresources quickly and efficiently, even a quick chat with a librarian in the Library skills drop-in office or through online chat can be very helpful.
