New!! Online Resources

Teaching Times / Nursery World / Child Protection Hub/ Sage Research Methods

All these resources are  accessible from our Databases A-Z pages at http://libguides.bishopg.ac.uk/az.php (see ‘new’ resources on the right of the homepage).  In addition, SAGE Research Methods is searched via WorldCat, and PsycArticles will be shortly.   

Teaching Times
Search the 'Library' or 'Knowledge Banks' areas to find articles about schools and teaching. Please note that when using the 'Knowledge Banks' section of this site you may see a message indicating that a further login or subscription is required – if you are on campus, or have logged in off-campus, this is not the case: you actually have full access to the whole of the Teaching Times resource (the publisher is aware of this issue).

Nursery World
Full access to the Nursery World website, including articles from the magazine (2000 to the present) as well as information on practice, activities, legislation and management.

Child Protection Hub
A central information service for child protection issues. Includes guidance, policy documents, executive summaries and media coverage.

SAGE Research Methods
A large collection of books, dictionaries, encyclopedia, articles and videos relating to research and research methods. (Does not include access to 'cases' or 'datasets'.)
