The Library subscribes to hundreds of databases containing thousands of journals which contain millions of journal articles. Without some guidance, finding the right one can be quite challenging.

A great place to start is the A-Z Databases guide on the Library homepage. From here you can select databases listed alphabetically or by faculty.

Selecting by faculty, for example Engineering & Information Sciences, you are presented with a series of tabs, breaking down the databases by school.

Clicking on one of these tabs, you will be given a list of multidisciplinary databases and specialist databases.

Multidisciplinary databases cover a wide range of subjects including the arts, business, literature, law, medicine, science, and more from journals, newspapers, magazines, e-books, reviews and reports

Specialist databases also provide information in these formats but are focused on particular fields of study such as engineering, medicine or business. Some specialise even further; like a medical database tailored specifically for nurses, for example.
