Copies of all core and background texts given on the module reading lists will be available either electronically (online books can be accessed through our discovery tools, Library Search) or in print. Details of textbook provision is given in more details on the Student Resources pages.
If specific journal articles or book chapters are needed for teaching we may be able to scan them and add to our digitised collection. Note copyright restrictions apply and it is not normally possible to scan whole books.

However, you can use our increasing collection of online books - which are useful for both research and teaching. Search these collections through our discovery tools, Library Search.
