Wider reading

Check the Books page for other options. We can buy books you recommend, obtain additional material as Interlibrary Loans, and get you access to other university libraries.

Literature reviews

A literature review examines and comments on the information available about a topic. It provides background to your work, showing how it relates to existing knowledge of the field, and demonstrating your command of the subject.

The Finding Information page on Skills for Learning contains guidance on finding information for literature reviews, as well as tips for finding sources for any of your projects.
