Find books and other resources

There's lots to explore in the Library.

We hold more than one million print volumes, from textbooks and literature to special collections, company reports, government publications and atlases.

We also arrange access to hundreds of thousands of eResources - online journal articles, electronic books, and other data services.

We can help you find the information you need to support your studies and advance your research.

SUPrimo is the University's search tool for Library resources.

Try typing a title, author's name or keywords in to the search box to get started. Check our search tips if you're not sure how.

You can also go to the main SUPrimo page to carry out an advanced search. Our video shows you how.
