Further help and training

There are a number of resources available that help to support students studying subjects related to  Media and communication .  These include:

Accessing other libraries

  • Information regarding access to LSE staff and students can be found by using the Using other librariespage.
  • You are entitled to borrow from  Senate House Library- take your LSE ID card along with you. This also gives you access to their online databases which include some film and humanities materials.
  • 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. 
  • Other useful Libraries in London include the British Library which has a vast collection of UK and foreign newspapers. This includes access to some online newspaper databases not held at LSE. Note that during 2013/14 some materials are due to be relocated - information on this can be checked on the website.
  • BFI Reuben Library has large collections of materials on the British film and Television industry. Access is now free of charge.
  • British Library IP Centrecontains some journals and other materials relating to the Media industry.

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 EndNoteor 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.
