Featured title

Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism (e-resource trial)

The Library is currently trialing The Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism. Described as “the largest and most comprehensive resource available for all those involved in the study of Modernism from students to academics”, it covers the Modernist period with a broadly interdisciplinary and global emphasis while focusing more specifically on key subject areas including Film, Literature, Music, and the Visual Arts. Researchers can browse by subject, movement, or place in order to discover connections between key topics and fields.

Please send us your feedback, either using the Library evaluation form or email your comments to Max. The trial ends on 24 June 2016.
