Library update for Researchers

Dear Researchers,   

We want you to know that library staff are committed to providing the best service we can to you throughout this challenging time. In-line with government advice the library building is now closed, but we are still working remotely to support you.

Additional digital resources

In addition to Library subscriptions, it may interest you to know a growing number of publishers are making access to their content open on a short-term basis. The library has started to collate this type of information in a list of resources to support teaching, learning and research. The list is currently linked on the MySurrey subject resources page for quick access.

The guide also includes tools to help discover Open Access content; and specific resources on Coronavirus research that may be useful for anyone considering signing up to the Governments database of researchers who can provide expert insights relating to both COVID 19 and it’s impacts.

This list is growing on a daily basis so please do refer back to it as new items will be added.

Open Access research resources

Authoritative and peer reviewed research data and books are increasingly made available as Open Access publications. To encourage the free exchange of knowledge and to widen access the Faculty Engagement Librarians have created a guide to help you discover freely available OA research publications: Open Access research resources

Virtual Library support

Subject information sources providing useful databases, articles, criticism and research to support you with your research can be found on the Library Subject Resources page.
