New E-Resources

We have introduced an e-book service which gives you access to over 170,000 e-books which you can read online. The collection of e-books will only be available temporarily to help the library see which books are useful to you.  Books that prove popular will be permanently added to the library’s e-book collection.

You will discover the e-books on Summon or you can search the database.

World Advertising Resource Center (WARC) is now available. WARC will allow you to search cases by industry, see WARC’s ranking of the world’s best marketing campaigns, find articles, case studies and research on key marketing topics, see emerging trends and access data on adspend, global media costs and media consumption.

The FAME database is also available. This database contains comprehensive information on companies in the UK and Ireland. You can use it to research individual companies, search for companies with specific profiles and for analysing companies and sets of companies.

IBISWorld has also been added to our e-collections.

You can access all of these from the Databases A-Z list.
