Science: Databases

What are Databases?

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

Databases contain a rich array of quality journal, magazine, newspaper articles and other academic information resources.

GMIT subscribes to several databases, and your choice will depend entirely on your information needs. This guide focuses on databases that cover computing topics, at other times you may need to look at databases that focus on other areas of research for a particular assignment.

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.
