Further help and training

There are a number of resources available that help to support students studying subjects related to International Relations. 

These include:

Accessing other libraries

  • Relevant libraries include: SOAS, SSEES, and the British Library
  • Information regarding access to LSE staff and students can be found by using the Using other libraries' page.
  • You are entitled to borrow from the Senate House Library - take your LSE ID card along with you. This also gives you access to their online databases.
  • 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.  This can be obtained at the Help Desk on the 1st floor. 
  • You could also try Chatham House library but you will need to demonstrate a research need to use their collections.

Citing and referencing

  • Once you have found your references, remember that you must cite them correctly. The Library has a useful collection of online guides on this. They include a podcast. 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.

Obtaining Further Help

Further help can be obtained via a number of different methods:

Collection policy

  • The International Relations collection policy indicates what the Library aims to collect in relation to this subject, it's comprehensiveness and depth.  The policy is reviewed in consultation with academic staff every few years.
