Library Guides


The majority of the library's journals are available online. To begin with you will find the academic or scholarly articles you need from peer-reviewed journals by using an "Articles" search on Primo, but as your course progresses you will find it useful to look at the databases below. For articles from previous centuries contemporary to the subject of your research use the historical newspapers and periodicals collections.
