Then you need to search through one of our bibliographic databases.
But first, have you had a look at our subject guides?
Bibliographic databases at the Tavistock and Portman
Here is a list of all the databases you can access thanks to the Tavistock library.
And here is a quick reminder of how to access them:
Many of those databases are hosted through the same platform: EBSCOhost. Below you will find help to use this platform effectively to find the documents you need.
To access those different databases, you will often need your Shibboleth login: here is some help about it.
Here is a video showing how to do a good but simple literature search, just as I teach it in class:
