Journal articles and online resources

Journal articles

Library Search| is a fast and intuitive library search system which enables you to search a wide range of LSE Library content, including journal articles, all in one place.

If you are conducting research on a topic and do not have a reading list, we recommend starting with Library Search and then moving on to searching individual  databases.

 Note Library Search does not include all the journal databases, newspaper articles, law reports or government publications. It is recommended to also search individually the databases listed below.
