Subscribed Resources

Don't forget to check the General Resources tab for exclusive access to subscribed resources. The Library has paid for these resources and accesss has now been extended to Alumni.

Access to libraries near you and other free resources

  1. If you are a member of a professional body, find out what database access and library services are offered to its members. 
  2. Does your nearest university allow the general public “walk-in” access to e-resources, or use of their library for reference purposes?
  3. Have a look at what's available at your local public library. For example, becoming a member of the Library of Birmingham gives you to access their subscribed databases and services for businesses.
  4. Do you live or work in London?  If so, find out what the British Library Business & IP Centre in St Pancras can offer on-site. Also, the City Business Library in Aldermanbury is open to all. 
  5. Do you live in Wales?  If so, you can register for free access to the National Library of Wales‘ external e-resources. National Library of Scotland and National Library of Ireland offer a similar service.
  6. Try an institutional repository search to uncover a wealth of academic, educational and research ‘open access’ web resources. For example, the Institutional Repository Search project and CORE allow you to search across UK academic repositories, or try the Bielefeld Academic Search Engine for a global search.
  7. Try searching Google Scholar, the Directory of Open Access Journals and the British Library’s Management & Business Studies Portal.
