Welcome! What's in this Guide?

Welcome to your EGIS subject guide 

(EGIS, except ICIT)

This guide is written and maintained by the Academic Support and Liaison Librarian for EGIS.  Please use the top navigation to find out about, and make the most of, the services and resources available to you to support your learning, teaching and research at Heriot-Watt University.

Note, there is a separate guide for:

Discovery

Discovery searches across many of the Library's databases, full-text collections and book catalogue.  You can enter search terms/keywords in the search box below:

or, for advanced searching, go to:

Remember:

  • Discovery can be a useful starting point for research, and is THE resource if you want to check if something is part of our collections.
  • It does not search all Heriot-Watt resources, therefore you may need to use resources in addition to Discovery.

Literature searching for your dissertation/thesis:

  • By default, the search results are set to show only those we have full-text access to.  If you want to find the most relevant results, you should select the 'search outside Heriot-Watt' option.
  • If you are conducting a more systematic or advanced literature search, you should take advantage of the features of our more specialist databases.

Known Resource Problems

Printing

If you encounter any printing problems, please contact the:

Wiley 

We are currently experiencing a problem affecting access to PDFs on the Wiley website.

Please note, for some results, you can still access the full-text via both HTML and ePub articles

You may still be able to read as PDF if the article is available from another provider - check the Discovery record and access it from there instead.

We are working to resolve this and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
