BCU's Digital Library also provides access to past exam papers, examples of final projects and digitised chapters and articles relevant to your course.


Journals cover a range of sources, including newspapers; magazines and scholarly publications.  News and research around your subject area are usually published first in journals.

A journal can be useful:

  • to find up-to-date information

  •  to find our what has been researched on your topic

  •  to find information that points to other relevant research

You can search by article title, journal title or keyword on the library website. Print-only journals are available in your campus library.

If the article you need is not accessible directly from this University, you can request it via Inter-Library Loan.
