Library Databases

Why use Academic Databases?

  • Academic databases allow you to search across thousands of Journals to help you find that key article for your Research.
  • The articles are indexed to allow for better searching
  • Searching academic databases will save you time and effort in researching a subject area comprehensively
  • They help you find citations for your Literature review and will search beyond the database to find the full text of articles
  • They are a high quality academic resource ( unlike Google or Wikipedia !) funded by your University Library
  • There are a number of different specialised databases for different Research Subject areas
  • Research Consultations are available on request so contact me now and we can arrange a meeting.
  • Check out the full A-Z listing of the Databases the Library subscribes to.
