Getting started - Find books, journal articles & research papers in Library Search

You can search directly from the search box on the front of the Library website.

  • Enter some keywords or concepts related to your topic, as you would in a Google search. For example: electricity renewable energy Nigeria
  • Think of synonyms and alternatives. For example: offshore installation or offshore platform
  • Use quotation marks to search for common terms or phrases. For example: "international energy", then you will avoid results where the words are not together.
  • Add an asterisk * at the end of a word to search for different variations of the word. For example: disclos* will give you hits for disclose, discloses, disclosure, disclosures, disclosing
  • Go to 'View Online' to read full text online items
  • 'Available in the Library' normally means the book is only available as a print copy
