Teaching Support: Accessing library resources

Information Specialists provide advice and support on use of library services & collections, particularly the library’s electronic resources.


The library's catalogue and discovery tool, Primo, is the gateway to Plymouth's print and electronic resources.

The library subscribes to a range of specialist databases to support all subject areas. As well as traditional abstracting and indexing databases these also include full text collections of journals, books and newspapers, audio-visual materials and online archives.

Find relevant resources plus help and support for your subject in the Library’s Subject Guides.

Accessing Google Scholar via this link will authenticate access to our subscribed resources. Remember that Scholar searches beyond PU resources and not all hits will be accessible.
