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.
One such search for Guy Fawkes resulted in links to Bridgeman Education and the images on this page. Just make sure you are logged in on your computer as a student or staff member of Cardiff Met to access this wonderful resource.
