Searching for books held outside of DMU

Library Hub Discover (formerly Copac) brings together the catalogues of over 70 major UK and Irish libraries. In a single search you can discover  the holdings of the UK’s national libraries (including the British Library), many University libraries, and specialist research libraries.  Researchers use Library Hub Discover to save time in their research, to quickly and easily discover and locate resources, to check document details and review materials in their field. Below is a link to the Library Hub Discover search pages.

Why are books useful?

Scholarly books can contain comprehensive accounts of research or scholarship, historical data, overviews, experts' views on themes/topics. They are particularly useful when you require background information and related research on a topic, when you want to put your topic in context, identify key theories and key researchers in a subject area.

What books are not good at is in researching current topics as it can take years to write and publish books. So whilst they can give you a good overview of a research area it is important to bring the research up to date by consulting other sources such as journals and newspapers.
