A-Z list of subject guides

Subject librarians assist students and academics in all programmes across the university. We provide 1-2-1 assistance with finding information, evaluating resources and referencing. Many of the subject guides produced for other programmes will also be useful for you. 

Think tanks

The Cambridge Dictionary defines a think tank as 'a group of experts who are brought together to develop ideas and give advice on a particular subject' (Cambridge Dictionary 2020).

Whilst some think tanks are independent, others have political leanings. As always, read critically and evaluate resources to assess their suitability for inclusion in your writing.



A charity is a charitable organisation set up to provide assistance to those in need. They are not-for profit organisations, usually with a specific theme such as health, education or another social, medical or economic basis. They are officially recognised (e.g. in the UK, they must be registered with and are regulated by the Charity Commission).
