FindIt@Bham: Resource list items

How to find resource list items and resource lists

If you are looking for a key text or a book or article from your reading list the best thing is to select the Resource Lists & Guides  scope. This will search just for books etc. that the library has been informed are on a resource list

You can also search using ResourceLists@Bham

The library works hard with Schools and Colleges to collate resource list information and order the items you need. If we don’t have the book you need we’ll see about ordering it for you and if you need the item quickly you may be able to place an interlibrary loan request.


If the book you need is on loan  place a reservation as follows:

  1. Sign in to FindIt@Bham
  2. Search for the book you need
  3. Click the reservations tab
  4. Select a pick-up location
  5. Click the hold button
