Our Library Guides bring together the essential resources in your subject area and connect you quickly and easily to information about Library Services.

From the Library Guides homepage select your school to see the Subject Guides relevant to you. In each of these guides our Librarians have gathered together the most important resources for you to use in your assignments and research. You’ll also find other helpful information such as details of library workshops or contact information for your Librarian.

As well as Subject Guides you’ll also find links to Help Guides and Library Service Guides which cover topics such as services for students with additional needs, how to access other University of London libraries and help with copyright.

ORCID: how to set up a unique researcher identifier

ORCID – Open Researcher and Contributor ID – is a persistent digital identifier which distinguishes individual researchers. If you are carrying out research at City, you may want to register for an ORCID.  Your ORCID can also be linked to your City Research Online record.

For more information on the benefits of having an ORCID and how to set it up, please see the recent post on citylibresearchers, our blog for research students and staff.

Temporary stock relocation at Northampton Square

Due to a large leak an area of Level 5 is currently inaccessible whilst the floor dries out.  If you require items from 617.96 MAC – 620.003 MCG please speak to a member of staff and they will fetch them for you.  The majority of these titles should be accessible again tomorrow morning.

In order to stop the leak and make repairs we have had to move stock from 617.96 NAG – 618.2 AND and 620 AND – 620.003 LEE to the front of Level 5.  If you require books from these classmarks please check at the front of Level 5, or ask a member of staff for assistance.  We hope to have these books back in the right place at some point next week.

Don’t fear, we do not expect you to remember all of this, signage is in place to direct you to the right places.  And please do ask a member of staff for assistance if you cannot find what you are looking for, we are here to help.

New Look to Cass Library Webpages

Have you noticed something different about Cass Library webpages? This summer we have been hard at work upgrading and streamlining the Cass Library webpages. New features include the following.

1. CityLibrary Search is now integrated into the homepage.  It searches across City Library collections, so if you know the name of the resource you’re looking for or would like to browse a subject, CityLibrary Search will help you find it fast.

2. Cass Library Guides

Introducing Library Guides for Cass Postgraduate students. Those studying on Cass Specialist MSc courses, MBA students and researchers can now interact with embedded features, find help with specialist resources and get in touch with a Business Librarian in an easy to use interface.

3. Business Databases by Topic

Need a database that contains Mutual Funds data? Maybe it’s Real Estate statistics you’re after. When you are unsure which database is the right one for your area, Business Databases by Topic recommends databases based on the information each database contains. Just enter your topic into the search bar to get started.

4. Cass Databases A-Z

We streamlined our databases into the searchable and intuitive CityLibrary databases collection. While you will continue to see only Cass databases, you can now explore other subjects and find support directly linked at the point of access.

In the process of revamping our online support, we looked at what our users want, and what is actually being used. Popular features like the following have been brought to the forefront so they will be easier to find.

  • Opening hours
  • Chat
  • PG Projects & Dissertations
  • Journals

We value your opinion, so please let us know what you think:
