I would be pleased to show you the resources we available - including LibrarySearch, individual databases (such as Sage Research Methods), and the Edinburgh Napier Research Repository. Please email me to make an appointment.
Do you need books not currently held by our library? Please email me with details of the book. Depending on availability, cost and wider use, I may be able to buy books for your research. If not, I can help you to find the books at other local libraries, or help you to use the inter-library loan service.
Listed below are some of the main tools and services to aid research. You will also find further information via the library's general post-graduate research pages or staff research pages. In particular I'd like to highlight our information about Literature Reviewing.
Thinking about REF2021? Thinking about publishing? Check out our Open Access blog - lots of advice & support, including a really useful decision tree and checklists.
We also have a very useful guide called Measure your research performance. From the more traditional metrics to altmetrics, this guide will help you to understand the basics.
Please note that access to our databases is for educational purposes only. You must not use our resources for commercial purposes as this may be against licence agreements. If you have any doubts, particularly regarding research projects with companies, please discuss your needs with me.
