How do I find my recommended reading?

Use Reading Lists @ Liverpool.  Type in your module code or keywords from the title, or your lecturer's name.  

How do I find journals and journal articles?

The best place to start your search for journal articles is DISCOVER. It is best to search using the keywords in your research question or topic. For more specialist searches, please read the information contained in the Journals and Databases tab of this guide.

If you are searching for a specific journal, search for the journal title in the library catalogue. The catalogue will tell you if the journal is available in print or electronic format.
