Resources and collections news

The encyclopedia of child and adolescent development

We have recently acquired The encyclopedia of child and adolescent development (Wiley-Blackwell, 2020), a 10-volume reference work on child and adolescent development with contributions from members of the Department of Experimental Psychology. This can be found on SOLO at

Elsevier ClinicalKey Student.

We are pleased to announce that Elsevier ClinicalKey Student is now available to all members of the University. This major medical ebook platform provides access to hundreds of well-known online medical textbooks as well as videos, images, case studies, and quiz banks/Q&As.

All of the textbooks will be available soon via SOLO and are directly now via the collection homepages which will also give you easy access to all of the extra content.  Go to and select “Log in via your institution” (you’ll need your University Single On).
