We have a number of different catalogues to provide access to our print and online resources. Enterprise and Summon are our primary catalogues - Enterprise giving title level access to our print and online materials, Summon giving article and chapter level access to online resources. For a definitive check of online access to a specific journal, use the E-journals Finder.


Enterprise is the University collections catalogue. Use it to search across many collections held by the University - see the Information link below for more detail. It includes printed books, e-books, printed journals, most of our e-journals, archives, rare books, atlases, maps, many other types of printed and multimedia material, objects and specimens.


Use the Summon discovery service to find online journal articles and book chapters covered by many of the Library's subscriptions and some open access resources.

E-journals Finder

Use the E-journals Finder to search or browse lists of our online periodicals. It is the most comprehensive source of information about our e-journals, as it is more complete and up-to-date than Enterprise or Summon.
