Latest Resources

Light reflects off a modern building


This page features a collection of the Library's latest resources.

The Architectural Review

The AR continues to be a leading authority on contemporary architecture and architectural culture. The Architectural Review has scoured the globe since 1896 for architecture that challenges and inspires. With fearless storytelling, independent critical voices and thought-provoking projects from around the world, the AR explores the forces that shape the homes, cities and places we inhabit. Buildings old and new are chosen as prisms through which arguments and broader narratives are constructed, getting under their skin to uncover the social, political and ecological landscapes in which they sit.

Advances in Neonatal care

Advances in Neonatal Care is the official journal of the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN). Addressing practice and research challenges faced every day—caring for the 40,000-plus low-birth-weight infants in Level II and Level III NICUs each year—the journal promotes evidence-based care and improved outcomes for the tiniest patients and their families. ANC takes a unique and dynamic approach to the original research and clinical articles it publishes and ensures that every paper is directly relevant to nursing as well as interdisciplinary practice.

This is a very specific journal dedicated to neonatal care and will provide an essential resource to students. There are an increasing number of students attending modules specific to neonatal speciality and this will provide evidence to support studies.
