Publications Directory

The web directory of resources for people affected by cancer is updated daily and currently has details of over 2,000 booklets, leaflets, books and audio-visual materials published by cancer charities (including Macmillan Cancer Support), government departments and commercial publishers.

Most were published in the last five years, but we have included some older resources that are still useful.

You can search by any word in the record, including author, publisher, title and subject keywords, and MAC code. There are links from the MAC code to the relevant page on Be.Macmillan, to help you order Macmillan publications. There are also links to the full document (where available) and, for books, to the reviews written by Macmillan volunteers.

For more information, e-mail Sue Hawkins.


If you would like access to the main database that supports the web directory, please e-mail Sue Hawkins to request a user login. This database has over 5,200 records, including resources that are more than five years old, out of print, or that do not have a publication date. You can search it as a guest user but the results will be the same as the web directory so we recommend a user login.


Stacks are collections of related resources. Working through a stack provides a wealth of information on a particular topic.
