What are databases?

Databases contain large collections of searchable, scholarly information.

The Library subscribes to hundreds of online databases, providing access to ebooks, journals, reports, newspapers and much more.

Where can I find databases?

  1. Our A-Z databases list. You can filter by faculty/subject and type of database (e.g. primary sources, statistics, case studies).
  2. Subject guides have databases specific to your faculty along with other helpful information.
