As we are a few weeks into the start of term, it’s time to think about doing some wider reading for your assignments or perhaps making a start on your research project or dissertation. Library Search is a great place to start when you’re looking for information. In one simple search you will find books, Ebooks, journal articles and more.
However, there are times when you want to narrow down your search by limiting yourself to a subject specific database such as British Geological Survey or Himalayan Database. Perhaps you are looking for a particular type of information like environmental monitoring data or global environmental change found in Ecology Abstracts.
That’s where your library Subject Guide can help. We have put together your Subject Guide so that you are able to find the best resources and advice for your programme, all in one place.
We have grouped together the most relevant journal collections, databases, eBook collections and specialist resources we have, so that you don’t need to go hunting for the right database from the 300+ available at Newcastle University.
You will find links to Support for your studies too. These quick links will take you to resources to help you develop your own academic skills, including tools to help you plan a search, quizzes to test your knowledge and advice on how to find, evaluate and reference the best information for your academic work.
There is a link to your Subject Guide within all of your Blackboard modules or you can explore them all from Subject Support on the Library website.
