New Resources on the A-Z

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic many publishers and suppliers are making content temporarily freely available. This page lists these offers, in addition to new content available either through our subscriptions, or permanently open access. All of our subscription and open access resources can be found in the A-Z list, on subject pages and via our catalogues.

Availability now will not guarantee availability in the future. The access expiry date can be found beside each resource and we do not recommend academics embed these resources into learning objects. If you feel that one of these resources would be valuable to add to a reading list or for research, please email and we will make best efforts to licence the item for long-term access.
