Use Library Search to find and access quality academic resources. If we don’t have something you need, please suggest a book
All modules now have online reading lists. You can also see the reading list for your module on the right hand side of the module page in My Learning.
Free personal eTextbooks (or an equivalent learning resource) are provided to all students enrolled on undergraduate and postgraduate modules based at the UK Hendon campus. The eTextbook is yours to keep through your degree and after. The scheme is run in partnership with the company Kortext. For more information on how to get your books, see the eTextbook page.
Our My Subject - Library Guides contain full details of the resources relevant to your subject.
We have an online enquiry service called Ask a Librarian for all your questions about using our resources. If you need more help with your study or research, please contact your subject liaison librarian.
The Library subscribes to many thousands of journals and newspapers, most of which are now online. To find out if we have a specific journal go to Library Search and use 'Journal Title Search'.

If none of our collections contain what you need, we can use our connections to academic libraries worldwide to get what you need. For more information see our Inter-Library Loans page.
