Dentistry resources

Location of print resources

You can find most of the print resources for your subject in the Medical Library:

  • Clinical dentistry: in the main Book Room as a discrete collection
  • Pre-clinical dentistry: in the Medical book collection
  • Print journals for clinical dentistry: in the Medical Library stacks alongside journals for medical sciences
  • New books are displayed in the Medical Library for two weeks, during which time they may be reserved using Library Search but not borrowed

Use Library Search to find the classmark for an item, and to search for books and other materials. Please note: the clinical dentistry books use a different classification scheme to the rest of the medical books.

  • Past exam papers and workshop answers: most are available via Blackboard
  • Theses: these are held in the Medical Library's thesis collection and can be viewed by request; use Library Search to find details
