There is currently trial access to PYMCA the Photographic Youth Music Culture Archive, a unique archive of over 40,000 photographs, documenting the lifestyles, fashions, hairstyles, music and subcultures of young people from the 1960’s to the present day. In addition to images it comprises essays, text, video and links to youth culture content to subscribed members for research purposes. The trial runs until 25th June 2010.

We currently have trial access to Collection 3 of Morgan & Claypool e-books.

Although the majority of journals articles you’ll find in Summon are available online, we still have some journals that aren’t available in an electronic format and you can only read them by visiting the library.
Unfortunately, at the moment, articles from those print-only journals are displaying as “full text online” in Summon…
When you click on the result, the only link you’ll see is through to the library catalogue (where you’ll find details of where to locate the journal)…
We’re working with the company that develops Summon to see if we can find a way of making the print-only journal articles display differently to the ones you can read online. In the meantime, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this causes you.
