If you can't find something you need or you need help with searching please do ask. All library staff are  here to help you.

You will also find help with finding information for your particular subject on the Subject guides pages

If you are not sure what some of the words you see or hear in the library mean the Guide to Library Language should be useful. If there is anything you are unsure of just ask us and we will be happy to help.
