If we don't have something

If we don't have a journal paper you need then we get it from the British Library, free for Research and Academic Staff.  They also lend books.  See our Inter library loans guide.

If you think we should buy a book for the library, tell us via the Suggest a book form for your campus.

If you want us to subscribe to a new journal (which can be expensive) please ask your Liaison Librarian.

Google Scholar search

Google Scholar searches world wide for scholarly papers.  Make sure you:

  • Set up Middlesex University as your library in Scholar Settings for free access to the Full Text.
  • Use Inter Library Loan service to get papers we don't have, free of charge.
  • Use Summon if you need a quick search of the resources we have.
