The Land Economy Collection

The Land Economy Collection

The Land Economy CollectionThe Seeley Library holds and develops the Land Economy collection. This includes the print books and electronic resources which support the teaching and research of the Land Economy Department.

Print books can be found on the mezzanine and all have an orange label on the book spine.

The collection also includes MPhil theses which can be read in the library. These cannot be browsed and must be ordered at the reference desk. 

The print collection is supported by a host of online resources, including ebooks, databases, online journals, and a dedicated Moodle page. The Seeley welcomes recommendations for new ebook acquisitions by members of the University.

Accessing scanned material on Moodle

Moodle Page for the Sociology Collection

The Seeley Library provides a selection of scanned material for Land Economy students. If you are enrolled on one of these papers you should have access to our Moodle site. If you don't currently have access but think you should, please get in touch with us and we'll try to get you added as soon as possible!

What you'll find on Moodle... Where an item is marked as core on a reading list and has a chapter specified, we'll try to upload a scan of the chapter to Moodle. We try to upload scans of anything that we think you may struggle to obtain, for example, a popular book that's out of print. 

Anything that's available as an eBook or eJournal can't be scanned, but you should always have access via iDiscover.

We are, however, bound by the copyright rules from the Copyright Licencing Agency (CLA); full details can be found on the CLA website.

The University holds a range of journals relating to Land Economy, including the role and use of land, real estate, and environment within an economy. It applies particularly the disciplines of economics, law and planning for the analysis of the governance of land use, urban areas and interactions with other environmental resources. A list of electronic journals appearing on Land Economy reading lists can be accessed here.
