Borrowing from other libraries is possible for LSE part-time masters students, research students and staff using the SCONUL access card that permits borrowing from member institutions. Apply online.
Citing and referencing
Once you have found your references, remember that you must cite them correctly. Refer to the Departmental handbook or your tutor for guidance on which style to use.
If you have a large number of references keep track of them using EndNote or Mendeley bibliographic software. These can be used with Word to format your references automatically. You can also export references automatically from many online databases. The library offers regular training courses and there are support materials in Moodle.

The Library can provide support and advice for those carrying out systematic reviews or mappings. There also is further advice in the Moodle Companion for Researchers on carrying out these reviews in a health related topic.
