Obtaining good quality information

Once you have graduated from Middlesex University, you will still need to be able to access good quality information for personal, social, and professional  reasons (see below). Information is also available to help you 'Plan your future'.

Accessing Middlesex University Resources

You can continue to use some of our resources once you have left the University (see links below).  This means that you can keep up-to-date with literature in your subject area.

However because you are no longer a student you will not be able to borrow material from the library or access the content of full-text electronic resources such as ebooks and ejournals.

Most material on our Research Repository will be available to you as this is an open access resource.
