Searching espace

​There are a number of ways to search espace, including by title, author and document type.

The term Access Status on the item record indicates availability of files as follows:

  • Open access – the publication may be viewed by the public
  • Open access via publisher – the publication is not available via espace. Instead follow the DOI or URL link to access via the publisher’s website
  • Fulltext not available – access to the publication is restricted, usually for copyright reasons.

Where there is an Embargo Lift Date on the item record, the publication may be accessed after this date has expired. If there is no Embargo Lift Date the publication is not available in espace. In this case follow the DOI or URL link (if provided) to locate the published version.

If the publication access status is Open access you may open and download the publication for research and study purposes. Other uses may be an infringement of copyright. Refer to applicable licence conditions for further content re-use terms.
