Social Work: Getting Started

E-resources

 

At the moment, we are having some issues with some of our e-resources.

E-books:

EBC/Proquest, Askew and Holts e-books can be accessed via the library catalogue as before.

Ebsco e-books can be accessed via the alternative route on this page.

 Journals and specialised databases:

Access must be made via an alternative route from the selection on this page.

Some databases require additional steps for access after the reset so please get in touch if you need help.

Reading Lists:

Reading lists are now accessible but if you encounter a login error, please try the alternative route above to find the e-book or the article.

 

We are working hard to resolve these issues.

 

Please email askalibrarian@lsbu.ac.uk if you have any queries.
