You may need to consult various types of resources and primary and secondary sources to inform your dissertation or research project. A wealth of content is available online. In this section we outline different types of sources and resources and how to find and access them.

Need a resource that is only available in printed form but can't access our physical libraries? Our Scan and Send Service allows UCL students and staff to request copies of journal articles and book chapters to be scanned and emailed to you directly.
