Getting started with King's repositories

King’s has two repositories where staff and PhD students deposit and openly share their research outputs:

  • Pure, or the Research Portal, is for research publications (such as journal articles, book chapters, theses, monographs, conference papers and grey literature).
  • KORDS (King’s Open Research Data System) is for research datasets.

Most of the items in these collections are free for all to access and re-use. Guidance for PhD students about how to deposit their work can be found on the Libraries & Collections Research Support webpages.

Getting Started With the Library

  • You just need your King’s ID card to enter the libraries.
  • No hot or smelly food allowed, cold snacks and lidded drinks are permitted.
