Welcome to the Collections Guide.

King's Libraries & Collections offer a huge multidisciplinary information resource base including over 1.2 million printed books and ebooks; more than 60,000 journals, reference tools, statistical data, official publications, maps, music scores, multimedia resources, photographs and manuscripts, as well as Archives (5 million items) and Special Collections of international standing.

This guide will highlight the online resources most relevant to your subject area.

  • The online reading lists contain links to the full-text of e-journal articles and e-books where the College owns the rights to them as well as showing whether print copies of books are available in the libraries.
