Finding a book is easy using online library catalogues, using simple keyword searching. Start with the School's catalogue to see if it's in our library. If it isn't, use Trove to see if it is in another library in Adelaide such as the University of South Australia.

Trove helps you find and use resources relating to Australia. It's more than a search engine. Trove brings together content from libraries, museums, archives and other research organisations and gives you tools to explore and build.

Join Trove as a member (free) and edit your profile to include the libraries that you are a member of. Then your searches will highlight those items that are located in those libraries.

Below is an introductory video on Trove:


The School has a subscription to the Arts & Humanities section of Very Short Introductions from OUP: click on the image to go the website but make sure you have the login and password from the librarian first.
