Guide to finding information sources


Google Scholar

Google Scholar Search


The Classics support guide provides information for undergraduates, graduates and researchers in the field of Classics.  A series of tabs at the top of this page introduce you to the information resources you will need for your studies - what they are and how to access and use them.

Off campus access is also available for most online resources. Once you have clicked on this link, type in your usual student / staff login to authenticate yourself. You will then be presented with a list of databases. Note that access is faster via Firefox.
