To find books , e-books and DVDs/Blu-Rays in the library, you'll need to use Library Search. Library Search enables you to search the library catalogue and also other resources - you can search by keyword (topic), author or title. DVDs and Blu-Rays are shelved on floor 5, and you can borrow them for 7 days. You may renew them for a further period as long as they are not required by another reader
The Library has many e-books covering almost all aspects of linguistics. Carry out a keyword search using the Library catalogue and narrow your results to ebooks by using the search limiters.
Handbooks are a good starting point for research on a topic, as they summarise research on a subject and its sub-fields. The Library subscribes to all Oxford Handbooks Online (OHO) linguistics titles, but we have many others - just search the library catalogue using "handbook" plus a few general keywords for your topic.
Academic books are useful for a detailed examination of specific topics. The library has good collections in Linguistics, and also has access to two major publisher collections of e-books (Oxford Scholarship Online and John Benjamins Ebooks), which are worth searching separately if you are doing detailed research on a topic.
