Explore Our Collections

Use the left-hand menu to explore different types of material in greater depth (e.g. exam papers, theses, special collections).

LibrarySearch is the Library's main search tool and should be your number one stop when looking for something within Royal Holloway's collections or other scholarly resources beyond. You can use advanced options to refine your search and find the most relevant results.

For further help using LibrarySearch, click on 'Help' in the top right hand corner of the LibrarySearch home page or view some short online tutorials.

Please note that not everything that appears on LibrarySearch is available in the Library or has full text availability online.
