Science: Databases

What are Databases?

The library databases are online collections of journal articles and other documents on various subjects.

Some are focused directly on your subject, while others cover a wider range of subjects.

Which database you use depends on what you’re looking for. It’s a good idea to start with Search + Find because it indexes most of our databases, so you can search across several databases at once. Alternatively click on the Databases button on the library website to search individually.

Searching Databases

Most of the library databases are searchable using the Search + Find search box on the library website. That’s the first search box you see. When you find the article or document you want, click on its title. This will bring you to the database where you can view or print the article.

You can also use the databases button on the library website to go directly to a specific database.

The following databases are not searchable using Search + Find, you must search them separately.
