Literature Searching

Arrow In this section
The Literature searching service is freely available to everyone based at MFT. Searches are undertaken by a specialist team of experienced professional librarians.

Request a search by completing the online form below.  Paper request forms are also available at each library site.

When completing the form, please ensure you provide us with as much information as possible about your search topic.

Results will be sent to you by email.

Please note:
We will not carry out a search where the purpose is for a course related project or assignment.  We can however offer you a tailored one to one training session where we can guide you through your search.  The provision of full-text articles is not part of this service. If you require the full text of an article as a result of a search, please use the document supply service.


Results of databases and/or internet searches are subject to the limitation of the database(s) and websites searched. Results of searches are also limited by your search request. It is the responsibility of the requester to determine the accuracy, validity and interpretation of the search results. By submitting this request you are acknowledging that you have read this disclaimer and that you acknowledge the limitations of database/internet searching.
