Librarian assistance

Need information about any of the listed subjects?  Unable to visit our Centre in person?

First, check this website for information – particularly our Online Resources page, and any links to other websites.  Look through our Resources & information section, which contains information on Pioneering black footballers, Black history in the UK, Refugees & asylum seekers, racism in football and women's football.  We also have a FAQ which features some statistics and answers to common queries.  Also, consider discussing your research with other users of the website in our Academic discussion forum.

If you still can not find the information that you require, then write, phone or email your enquiry to the Football Unites librarian, being as specific as possible about what you need to know, and we’ll try to help.
