Finding print books and journal articles on your list in the Library

Accessing ebooks and online journal articles on your list

Click VIEW ONLINE to view ebooks, online journal articles, and digitised chapters,

When accessing journal articles, you'll sometimes see several links to different publishers and databases. Usually you can just use the blue Full text online button, but you may wish to follow one of the alternative links if you prefer one of the alternative databases, and the date range covers the item you require.

You will be asked to sign-in with your Manchester Metropolitan University username and password to access the scan. 

Please note that only students enrolled on a unit are permitted to download or print from these scanned extracts.
