Applied Linguistics: Books


Print Books


Most of our print books can be borrowed. If the book you want is on loan, you can place a hold on it and you will get an email when it comes back.

Our printed books are arranged by subject classification. The Classification Scheme can seem complicated to start with, but you will soon get used to it.  Most books for Languages and Literature are on Floor 3. Books for Social Sciences are on Floor 5.

Reading Lists


Use our online reading lists to find key readings for your modules. Link directly to an e-book, scanned chapter, or the library catalogue with information about where to find the book in the Library.
