We’ve been hard at work expanding our Subject Guides section on our website to now include over 40+ tailor-made pages that cover everything from Animation to Child Care, Drama to Mathematics, Media Studies to Public Services and much more!
On each page you’ll find lists of subject-relevant books, e-books, magazines, DVDs, streamed video (on our media player, ClickView), external websites and links to extremely useful study help sites.
Hopefully you’ll find everything you need, however if we have missed out a subject or a particular excellent website, please feel free to contact us and we’ll include it in our ever-expanding list, it’s an organic thing!
Why not take a look for yourself and discover something new?
