Just as with icebergs, the bulk of resources available through our library are largely out of direct view. The books and journals that you see on the shelves are simply the tip of the iceberg. Electronic books, journals and vast databases can be accessed through the library pages on the staff and student portals. Follow the quick link to the electronic library. Here you can search the catalogue for books, databases, journals and so on, and also for images.
