Can't Find What You're Looking For?

Books

  • If the University doesn't have the book you need, email us to suggest a book for the library
  • If the book is only available in print, email us to let us know and we will do our best to get hold of an ebook for you

Journal articles

  • Make sure you're using either SVE (Southampton Virtual Environment) or VPN (Virtual Private Network) - for more information look at our page about off-campus access
  • Try to find an open access copy - these are available for free: 
  • Unpaywall, Open Access Button and CORE Discovery are all Chrome and Firefox extensions that find legal open access copies. Open Access Helper works the same way for iOS and Safari

  • Kopernio a Chrome extension that finds articles from our library subscriptions and open access versions
  • Google: if you find an article that is behind a paywall, try copy & pasting the article title into a search engine. If there is a copy in a repository it will often display on the first page of search results 

  • Still no luck? Try our interlibrary loan service. We will try our best to get hold of articles for you, although it may not be possible or be delayed while libraries are closed

  • the library holds print copies of all University of Southampton doctoral level theses; these are listed on WebCat
  • many of these are now also available online from ePrints Soton
