Welcome to the University, we’ve got a whole range of resources to get you started. 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 ERIC (EBSCO) covering education journal articles, research reports, curriculum and teaching guides, conference papers, and books. Perhaps you are looking for a particular type of information like the growth and development of children, so looking in Child Development & Adolescent Studies would help.
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.
You can get help at anytime during your studies by contacting your Social Science Liaison Team; Karen and Louise who are based in the Philip Robinson Library.
