E-Resource Trials: Recent additions

The Library's subject teams regularly trial the latest databases & e-resources to support your studies. The following e-resource trials are now available:

Index to Printed Music

The Index to Printed Music (IPM) is the digital finding aid for locating musical works contained in printed collections, sets, and series. IPM indexes individual pieces printed in the complete works of composers, anthologies of music, and other scholarly editions. With over 550,000 entries, curated by a team of experts, IPM expands every year to include new volumes as they are added to existing sets and series and new editions as they appear on the market.

Paris Peace Conference and Beyond

This collection contains archival material relating to the Paris Peace Conference that took place in the aftermath of the First World War. The documents cover the treaties of Versailles, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Neuilly-sur-Seine, Trianon, Sèvres, Lausanne, and Locarno, as well as the foundation of the League of Nations. Together, these treaties severely curtailed German power and influence, redrew national boundaries in Europe and the Middle East, and led to the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire.

Most of the files, including FO 608 (Foreign Office: Peace Conference; British Delegation, Correspondence and Papers), are drawn from the UK National Archives, while the British Library provided the personal papers of Lord Robert Cecil and Sir Arthur Balfour.

Skills for Study

Skills for Study helps students to develop the skills they need to succeed in their studies and prepare for life after university. Each of the 12 modules focuses on a distinct topic, ranging from core academic skills such as critical thinking and academic writing to broader skills like group work and personal development, which help students to get the most out of their time at university. The resource can be used as part of self-directed learning and can also be incorporated into classroom teaching.
The content within Skills for Study is based on the work of Stella Cottrell, bestselling author of The Study Skills Handbook.
