What if I can't find any literature?

It is just possible that nothing has been written on the area you are researching!

You might have to try broadening your search area and including more general search terms. If you do find you are struggling, please let us know and we will help you.  You can book a one-to-one research skills session with a member of the Library Team or you can just email or call us:
